I'll extend the same offer to you and anyone else who finds themselves in Vegas and bored of the Strip. It didn't take us long to get bored with it. I'm sure Vegas is much more fun with lots of extra money and free time. We have neither.

There are so many good trails within half an hour of the Strip. I've lived in most cities with a Navy base and Vegas has the largest concentration of outdoor activities we've seen.

Only thing it's missing are great fishing spots. We moved from Florida where you couldn't drive five minutes without being near a pond, lake, river or ocean. We had Lake Mead here, but the lake is so overrun with Asian Carp and they're vegetarians which makes them difficult to catch.

Here is an example of one of the many dangers inside the mines. This particular mine was closed over 100 years ago. There is wood shoring throughout the mine system. If this system was going to collapse, the wood pillars would do nothing to save you.

Good luck getting most people to work for minimum wage these days. Back then, you would hike several hundred feet up the side of a mountain, then work all day underground in the harshest and most unsafe working conditions. All for pennies a day and this is what you came home to.

Here's an incline shaft. You can see the rail for the ore carts still in place on the right. It was a deep one. Much further than our lights could pierce. We only brought one 70 meter rope into the mine and even that was not enough to reach the bottom.

When we returned to that mine, we found the trail was washed out and hiking during the summer can be very uncomfortable. With winter coming, we plan on getting to the lower levels.

Dinner! Later, Jeeps. If anyone is still interested, I'll post more another time.

Very cool! When I went to Vegas a few years ago, I went to see hoover dam and on the way I was able to see how great that area must be for offroading and exploring. If I'm ever in Vegas again I'll be sure to let you know so we can do some mine exploring .

Yeah, there are quite a few nice trails above and below the Hoover Dam area. I've been in the area many times and find something new each time.

While at Hoover Dam, did you notice the overlooking WW2 defense bunker? It's very well camoflaged using natural rock, so unless you know what to look for, it's easy to miss.
