The bright lights of the city may dazzle, but they have nothing on the spectacular and natural light from the glow of the sun setting in the Nevada desert. Saddle up for this Wild West Adventure, just a mere 45-minutes outside the City of Lights, where you'll find yourself in the dramatic red rock country. After a warm howdy, experienced wranglers will give you a few pointers on horsemanship so you can cowboy like a pro.
Now it’s time to ride away on a serene evening exploration of the rugged Nevada desert trails. The sound of your horses hooves clonking along will add to the authenticity of this cowboy exploration into Red Rock Canyon, where spectacular views of Sandstone Mountains, desert gullies and brick red canyon rock formations await. You may be in arid land, but you'll be amazed at the life that flourishes around you, including the icon of the desert, the symbolic Joshua tree. Some strains of this desert dwelling tree can live to be thousands of years old. However they lack annual growth rings making it difficult to tell their exact age. Jackrabbits are also indigenous to this area, but can only live for about 5 years, with an impressive speed of 40 mph; don’t blink or you will miss these little guys. As the evening winds down and the sun sets over the distant mountains keep your ears peeled for the sounds of coyotes closing out another day in the Nevada desert.
Once you’ve become one with your inner cowboy it’s time to head back to the ranch house to feast on some stick-to-your-bones cowboy grub including steak or mesquite-grilled chicken, with all the fixings. Weather permitting, let your food digest next at an open campfire and share stories of your travels and adventures under the Nevada night skies. So you think you’re a cowboy now? Prove it by tossing a lariat at a steer head (don’t worry it’s not real, but still takes skill!)
You can see how the distinctive Joshua tree, with its limbs stretched heavenward, could be taken as a symbol of hope by the Mormon travelers who plied the westward desert trails. Like Biblical Joshua, who extended his hands to the sky to pray as he led the Israelites through the wilderness, the trees seemed to the Mormons a symbol of their hopes to find a new home.
