This was a wonderful trip with a staff that clearly loved where they were and what they were doing. The scenery is awe-inspiring. The hikes were fun and not too difficult. Perfect weather made all of our outdoor time truly enjoyable. I highly recommend this trip to those who enjoy nature.

This was a wonderful trip! I learned so much about the geology and ecology in a desert environment. It made me aware that true beauty lies everywhere in nature.....you just have to open your eyes. Darrell has a passion for the desert, and his enthusiasm was passed on to all the participants on this program. I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone who is interested in learning more about the desert environment.

Coming from Iowa, it gave me a wonderful introduction to the desert ecosystem and geology that are so different from the Midwest.

I think the website is very user-friendly and enjoy checking out the trips even though I may not select to go on as many as I might like (money)!
