Ahh, Vegas. Lights, gambling, fun, and 4x4 trails.

We always stop in Vegas during our winter get away’s and it never disappoints. This year, my Brother and Wife join us to see what we really do down there. We got to show them not only the Vegas most people see, but some of what lies beyond.

I was amazed that my older brother had never been 4 wheeling in his life! Well, we broke him in Zuki style. We took them over to Overton, NV. Home to the Logandale Trail system and a lot of back road fun.

Finding a secret spot for a picnic found us sharing with a herd of the wild kind, but they wandered off leaving us to enjoy our picnic.

A visit to the area would not be complete without driving through Valley of Fire. Elephant Rock, Stone Cabins and the Petroglyphs are only a sample of what you can find here.

Venturing to the other side of Vegas, there is a rest stop on Hwy 95 heading to Laughlin. We always pull in here for a pit stop on our route but never gave a thought to where the road leading east went. This time having read about Nelson and the Eldorado Canyon, we needed to pay it a visit. Here was an old Ghost Town; used to have active mining from 1858 until 1945 and the buildings are amazingly intact.

The Store is still open for tourists like us and is filled with photos of its Hollywood Fame starring in the movie "3000 miles to Graceland". This is the area they blew up the plane. They moved the remains of the plane to this spot, posing it as a crash.

What else did we do in Vegas? Well what happens in Vegas…….
