Spring 2017 and we have a bumper crop of wildflowers in the Mojave! It has been a wet winter in the southern California
deserts and with that comes a spectacular bloom of wildflowers.
Shown here: a field of brown eyed evening primrose in Anza-Borrego
State Park taken during our February 2017 trip. This is a
wonderful time to get out into the desert and take in this floral
fiesta. For the latest info on the 2017 bloom go to the DesertUSA wildflower report. After doing that, become a
of Desert Survivors and join us on our wilderness adventures.

& UPCOMING EVENTS
THE SPRING 2017 TRIPS SCHEDULE IS HERE
Spring 2017 Trip Roster is set and it is full of wonderful excursions
and events. We are sponsoring car camps to the Mojave National
Preserve, Owens Peak, CA and the Fox Range in Washoe County, NV.
Join us on a backpack to Joaquin Rocks in Fresno County where we will
camp at the hideout of 19th-Century robber Joaquin Murrieta. In
July, David Oline will lead a trip that is called "An Oregon Canyon
Adventure Drive/Car Camp/Back". This promises to be someting
special. In celebration of John Muir's birthday we will work to
restore the desert wilderness on a service trip to the Piper and
Sylvania Mountain Wilderness areas. We will sponsor 2
back-country skills seminars in the greater Bay Area––a vehicle first
aid class in Watsonville and a wilderness navigation lesson in
Oakland. There are also a few openings for the Desolation Canyon
Raft trips on the Green River in Utah in June, but you need to contact
the trip outfitters, ARTA, by April 7, 2017.
Spring is here! Please join us on our desert adventures.
