Mojave Desert Travel Tips For Tours From Las Vegas

Death Valley, Las Vegas, and Mojave Desert Weather

Weather changes in desert environments can be quick and extreme. It can go from sunny to stormy in the blink of an eye.

Winds rip through the desert picking up surface sand that blasts against you and prevents you from opening your eyes, and making it hard to get a breath.

Wind can bring storm fronts quickly, and black clouds in the distance can become thunderstorms over your head as you watch.

It’s important to know your escape routes if you are hiking in a wash or narrow canyon.

Always be looking for changes in the wind or sky, and know how to access higher ground.

Torrential downpours, even for a short while, and a even few miles away can cause tremendous flash floods.
