Would anyone be interested in checking out the desert between the Death Valley trip and the Joshua Tree trip in March? There is a 2 day window and travel between Las Vegas and Palm Springs. I think checking out the desert and maybe hike a bit would be fun but I don't want to go by myself. Thanks.

Hi, fellow Joshua Tree participants! My husband, Leon, and I are avid hikers and are excited about our upcoming Road Scholar hiking trip. Joshua Tree will be our first Road Scholar trip, and we are anxious to meet everyone. See you all on November 10th! Judy Gordon-Omelka
