Before returning to Las Vegas we stop at Hemingway Park where herds of “Wild” Big Horn Sheep often gather from the surrounding mountains to graze on the sweet grass. This is the real raft tour! Your journey begins with a 12-mile, 3 ½ hour “Calm Water” raft trip down the Colorado River to Willow Beach, Arizona. This soft adventure gently flows from the base of the Hoover Dam, affording a view and perspective of the dam available nowhere else. Along the way, expert guides point out the soaring birds of prey, the gravity defying bighorn sheep, and the unexpected waterfalls and bubbling hot springs. Lunch is served on a romantic sandy beach along the river.
