their love of nature? Perhaps your group wants to take up a
lifestyle addition, learn about local history, geology, flora and
fauna, or just have a fun day together in nature, team building.

Orocopia Mountain Wilderness found 50 miles east of Palm
magical playground of uplifted red and multi-colored canyons,
stratified mesas and plateaus suggesting the red-rock area of Moab and
south-central Utah. You really get-away-from-it-all out there in this
rock lover's paradise.
can also treat you to the closer Mecca
Hills, Box Canyon and Painted Canyon area, where
geologists from all
over California journey to explore and examine the colorful uplifted,
contorted hills and rock formations impacted by the San Andreas Fault.
The mysterious slot canyon known as Ladder Canyon leads you into the
acclaimed exotic beauty of Painted Canyon...but I know other places,
too, seldom visited that will excite your sense of adventure while
offering you the best in desert beauty.

to explore and discover the unique rock formations of one of our
nation's newest National Park.

canyons and on the wide-vista trails above the canyons that lead into
the wilderness and awesome mountain heights above!
Jacinto/Santa Rosa Mountains/National Monument. Tired of
heat, sand and traffic? I'll share with you the cool mountain trails

mountains above the resort town of Idyllwild. The four seasons at your
full moon hike in exotic desert/canyon settings...like
walking through an Ansel Adams gallery!
