In the Mojave Desert, boulders and tangled granite seem to rise from the earth.
Although the ruggedly beautiful Joshua Tree National Park receives more than a million visitors each year, only a handful of those venture more than a mile from the parking lot. Count yourself as one of the lucky few as you enjoy a rare, up-close view of the rich Joshua Tree ecosystem. Experience the landscape firsthand, alongside the birds and animals and amidst the park's namesake Joshua Trees, cholla cactus and palms. Both demanding and beautiful, the desert pushes you to challenge your personal limits and develop leadership skills in an extreme, natural environment.
