LAS VEGAS, 1829 LIQUID GOLD DISCOVERED IN NEVADA DESERT
Almost 200 years ago, Mexican trader Antonio Armijo, leading a 60-man party along the Spanish Trail to Los Angeles, veered from the accepted route. While Armijo's caravan was camped, a scouting party rode west in search of water. An experienced young scout, Rafael Rivera, left the main party and ventured into the unexplored desert. Within two weeks, he discovered springs containing artesian wells that supported extensive green areas or vegas, hence the name Las Vegas . Today, it’s more than water that springs forth . It’s LIQUID GOLD, the Spirits of Mexico!
VIVA ARMIJO! VIVA RIVERA! VIVA LAS VEGAS!
