See aerial sights of Hoover Dam, Black Canyon, Lake Mead, and Fortification Hill – an extinct volcano located in the Lake Mead National Recreational area.
Upon reaching the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, soar over Hualapai land and pass by the Skywalk Glass Bridge (the highest man-made structure in the world), Guano Point, and Eagle Point. Witness firsthand the geological history of the canyon walls and the powerful Colorado River flowing along the canyon floor.
Gold Mine Tour – 3 – 3.5 Hours Begin with a walking tour of the old Techatticup Mill Site. Here the ore was brought out of the mine to the stamp mill, crushed to a powder, and mixed in cyanide tanks to separate the gold, silver. Proceed into the “Savage Mine” where you will view the up and down slopes as well as the actual gold veins they chased.
As you venture deeper into this rumored haunted gold mine, you will visit 3 different shafts, one of which drops down over 900 feet. Learn how the hardiest of men labored feverishly in search for gold! These men chiseled their way through the mountainside inch by inch, working by candlelight with the most basic of tools. The air temperature of the mine is a comfortable 70 degrees F year round.
