Spirit Mountains

Spirit Mountains, Nevada, Dry Waterfall
The striking granite-bouldered landscape

The Spirit Mountains are near Laughlin, NV and are part of the Newberry mountains.  The landscape is immensely beautiful, with massive granite boulders and outcroppings.  These mountains are considered sacred by many native people of the Mojave & Sonoran deserts, as it is their belief that this area is the center of creation.  One way to access this area is to start by exploring the amazing petroglyphs at Grapevine Canyon, but then continue your hike onward past the canyon (where 99% of people stop).  You’ll come across amazing granite structures, a cottonwood stand in a natural spring, water-carved narrows and eventually a dry waterfall.  Beautiful!
