Hiking to the Citadel Ruins, in the proposed Bears Ears National Monument, Utah.
During a May 2016 car camp/backpack trip Desert Survivors explored a
dozen ancient-American heritage sites as well as canyons, mesas, and
red rock formations in southeast Utah. These lands are considered
sacred to Native Americans and 26 tribes have joined together asking
President Obama to designate 1.9 million acres as a monument; thereby
protecting it from destructive land uses, such as mining and
irresponsible off-road vehicle use and by the rampant looting and
destruction of archeological sites. Desert Survivors supports the
creation of the Bears Ears National Monument. Become a member

intriguing places in the desert and our efforts to preserve them for

is here and the southern and low deserts are far too hot for
safe exploration. It is the season when Desert Survivors head out
high elevations and northern desert locations. This July Dave
Oline will lead a first time ever Desert Survivors fishing trip to
Guano Creek in Lake County Oregon––just north of the Sheldon
Preserve. Please Note: This trip is for those who do not fish
too. Later in July, Jannet Schraer will lead a car camp
from her ranch near Watsonville to the west entrance of Pinnacles
National Park. Bob Lyon leads three car camps along the fringes
of the Owens Valley: 1. In the Sierras above Lone Pine 2. the White
Mountains and 3. the Inyo Mountains.
In September Dave Oline will head back to the southern Oregon deserts
for more fishing, this time to Trout Creek. Add to this mix
the Sierra Club Desert Committee meeting and we have an active summer
excursion agenda. Please go to the TRIPS PAGE for more info on these trips.
