If you follow the road from Nelson Ghost Town towards the Colorado River, you will reach a spot with views of the El Dorado Canyon. I arrived at dusk which made for less than perfect photos, but you can get an idea of what the area looks like. I hope to return again for some hiking, swimming, and exploring.
I think this is what surprised me the most about my trip to Nelson Ghost Town. I was not expecting such beautiful desert views. This place does not disappoint. If you are in Vegas, this is a most worthy day trip.
This may be the primary reason that photographers find this place alluring. While I was there, there was a wedding session and a fashion session in progress. They loved the barn and the historic items to be found throughout the property.
