What You Can Expect
Your journey begins before dark as you explore steep-walled canyons along the San Andreas Fault. As the sun begins to set, grab your camera to capture the spectacular transition from day to night as light casts amazing shadows on the mountains, creating a depth and range of colors unseen during the day.
While you explore the pristine, natural palm oasis of this area, learn how and why the Cahuilla Indians lived on the San Andreas Fault and hear fascinating stories of the valley's pioneer settlers and gold miners. Experience the pure silence and beauty of the desert at twilight away from the lights and noise of the city. This is the best time to spot wildlife as this is when many desert animals are most active.
After sunset, enjoy star- and planet-gazing under the clear desert skies with the help of a ‘Sky Scout’, a hand held which helps point out specific stars, and laser pointers. Your guide will act as a ‘Star Navigator,’ pointing out planets and stars through the ‘Sky-Scout’ and sharing the mythology of the constellations while you enjoy the peaceful desert atmosphere.
Highly recommend this tour! Our guide, Fox Robe was very informative and entertaining about a wide array of topics regarding this area of California. It was definitely more than expected! Shining moment: spotting a coyote and later hearing some!
