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.
Just beyond the town of Nelson, you can discover Nelson Ghost Town. This spot is a former Texaco gas station, just north of the Techatticup Mine which is open for tours. The signs at the Ghost Town ask you to check in at the store, but there wasn’t much activity when I visited. Just beyond the store and its artifacts, you can find a plane crash that has been previously used as a movie set. It is a beautiful spot for photos.
Lunch is always wonderful if you are dining at The Buffet at the Wynn.
Spent some time at the Wynn today. A beautiful Hotel and Casino, as you would expect.
At the end of the LINQ Promenade you can view or ride the High Roller. At 550 feet tall, this is the world’s tallest observation wheel.
