This thrilling 3.5-hour Hummer adventure begins as you depart your Las Vegas hotel and travel on trails once used by early explorers. See deserted mines and the ruins of old mining camps. Stop at abandoned mines for plenty of photo opportunities as your expert guides explain the fascinating history of this area. If you are interested, stop at a dry wash for some treasure hunting. More adventurous people may find beautiful mineralized stones or even gold!
Continue through winding trails in a majestic Joshua tree forest. Joshua trees are unique due to their large size and unusual physical characteristics and are an attractive component of the desert. Climb over obstacles impossible for other vehicles and discover why Hummers meet the strong demands of the U.S. Military.
Ascend 4,000 feet for a breathtaking view of valleys and mountains! Keep your cameras ready - you may encounter Big Horn Sheep, Wild Burros, Mustangs and even the elusive Kit Fox. Visit the Pioneer Saloon! Built in 1913, it's still open and happy to serve you. See the memorial to Clark Gable's wife, whose plane crashed on Mount Potosi in 1942. Learn the history of this old mining town, turned almost ghost town, and why it's called Goodsprings from your knowledgeable driver-guide.
