Most people visiting Vegas never leave the Strip and sadly miss so much of our local character and history. My wife and I enjoy climbing and exploring, but our passion is historical mine exploration. There are so many ways to die in mine, so I hope this doesn't encourage anyone. I just wanted to share with everyone an alternative to the Strip. Enjoy them from a safe distance.
I have thousands of pictures of mines within an hours drive of the Vegas Strip. I'll update this thread if there's an interest. If you ever plan on visiting Vegas, I hope you take a day to get outdoors.
This mine really snuck up on us. Most of the mines we've encountered have been into a rock feature like a hill or a mountain.
