First Experience- Travel Through The Mojave Desert
Your day will start early. To begin the adventure, you will be picked up near or at your hotel and whisked away on your day trip adventure. On the way out of Las Vegas, your dedicated tour guide will share facts and history about the local area. Drive past Lake Mead and over the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge.
Along the route from Vegas to West Rim you will be able to enjoy the serene desert landscape. Most notably you will witness roadside Joshua trees, a famous feature of this desert area. These trees have much history and mystique attached to them that your guide will happily share with you.
Watch Grazing Big Horn Sheep and Visit a Joshua Tree Forest
Our next stop will be in a natural area, where Big Horn Sheep often graze. The trip also includes a visit at the Joshua Tree Forest and a closer view of the unique Joshua tree. The tree was given its name by Mormon settlers, who thought the tree’s form resembled the biblical account of Joshua raising his arms in prayer.
What is unique about the Joshua tree is the fact it does not feature tree rings. Tree rings reveal the age of a tree. As a result, scientists estimate that many of the Joshua trees to be thousands of years old – some even older than what is currently believed.
Arriving at Grand Canyon West
Your helicopter ride will take you down to the canyon’s floor, where you will take a 20-minute boat ride down the Colorado River. Not only can you see the canyon from the air, you can also see it up-close at ground level. Once your boat ride is through, your helicopter will take you back to the West Rim, where you can spend time viewing some of the major attractions.
The Skywalk Bridge
One of the main highlights of Grand Canyon West is the Skywalk bridge at Eagle Point. Don’t worry about the glass breaking, as it has been made to withstand hurricane winds and high levels of seismic activity. Eagle Point is a well-known viewpoint at the Skywalk, as the rock formation at the site resembles an eagle spreading its wings.
You can lunch at the Skywalk’s café or visit Guano Point, the highest elevation at the West Rim. Trek up Highpoint Hike to witness amazing rock formations and a panoramic vista. Guano Point is also home to the Guano Point Café, which serves 360-degree views alongside a menu of delicious cuisine. Guano Point is so named as it once was the site of a large guano mining operation. In fact, a long tram that once was used to mine guano fertilizer still remains.
Grand Canyon West is also the home of Hualapai Ranch. Stroll the boardwalk at the site and enjoy cowboy entertainment. Families can enjoy Native American traditional performances, Wild West gun battles, and magic shows at the popular site. Because Grand Canyon West is fairly close to the Las Vegas Strip (about 125 miles), you will have about three hours to view all the major attractions.
How to Dress for Your Canyon Tour
Because the rocks of the canyon absorb the sun’s heat, you need to dress properly to keep from getting sun burned. Even in the warmest weather, it is best to wear long sleeves and slacks or pants. Never wear uncomfortable shoes, and make sure your footwear is close-toed. Your shoes should have a tread on the back that keeps your footing safe and secure.
You also should pull your hair back and refrain from wearing loose jewelry on your day trip. Wear a protective sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. Because you will experience various elevations and environments, you will need to dress in light layers.
Have Dinner and Catch a Show
