Do you know that Sunday, March 26th is officially my 3rd-year blogiversary? Yep! That’s right, Three years ago, I began writing on my own domain. That’s when I knew for sure that I wanted to put my Journalism degree in motion. Aside from previously writing as an Affordable Make-Up Examiner on Examiner, I wrote a series of personal blogs on Blogger (Just Brennon and Just Brennon, Again). But, here I am three years later, taking my writing and adventures one step further and partnering with some of the most amazing people and companies out there.
That’s right! So, what better way to celebrate than posting something amazing and pink from partnering with awesome people over at PINK Jeep Tours?This past Sunday, while on our Southwestern tour, we took our first adventure tour called the Red Rock Canyon with Rocky Gap Adventure Tour by PINK Jeep Tours out of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pink Jeep Tours provide one-of-a-kind, unique adventure tours through Sedona, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Grand Canyon, Arizona in pink jeeps! And, we all know how much I love the color pink, right? So, you know I couldn’t wait for this 13 mile, rugged, Vegas’ backcountry tour!
Adventure tours range in cost, but can be found on the Pink Jeep Tours website.At our scheduled times, we were picked up from our hotel at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip in the Pink Jeep Tours Shuttle bus and took a short drive through Las Vegas to Red Rock Canyon.We then met our tour guide, Sandy and transferred to a signature, open-air, pink Jeep Wrangler to check out the Visitor Center at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and tour the Rocky Gap portion of the three-hour tour!
Our first stop was the Visitor Center, where my son took a liking to the animal puppets inside of the Gift Shop. Outside of the Gift Shop, the boys took photos at the photo stand, printed souvenir coins, learned about dinosaur tracks, and received passport activity books. I on the other hand, fell in love with the hand-made, wooden, native figurines. Aren’t they gorgeous? I mean, look at the details?
Can you spot the pictograph in the photo below?
First, we were able to explore areas that many can’t get to unless they hike and/or know the area. And, with us being from Illinois, there would have been no way I would have known the area and how to get around.
Finally, we were given such great information about everything. From the time we stepped onto the shuttle bus to the time we were getting back off at our hotel.I am sure some of the information that was provided about the area is not a part of the tour, but because the guides have a genuine passion for their work, you are provided with so much more information.So, if you are making plans for spring break and summer vacation, definitely check into booking a tour today.
P.S. Don’t forget…
Stay hydrated while out on the tour, kindly tip your tour guide, and if you are traveling with children like I always do, the Nevada law requires children to be properly secured in a car seat until they are at least six years old and 60 lbs. Unfortunately, if your children are 18 months or younger, they are not permitted on this tour.
