Join us for a 3-day, 2-night tour of the beautiful scenery and natural history of the Mojave desert and western great basin. We will visit spectacular geological sites such as Death Valley, Kelso Dunes, and Pinnacles National Natural Landmark, with trilobite collecting in the Nopah Range, and a tour of the fossil beds at Redrock Canyon State Park. Some of our stops in Death Valley will include sinuous Mosaic Canyon, the dunes at Stovepipe Wells, the old borax works, the salt flats at Devil’s Golf Course, the lowest point in North America, and the spectacular vistas from Zabriskie Point and Dante’s View.

Each night we stay in highly-rated hotels (breakfast included), and there will be picnic lunches all three days. The guides will also provide information about the geology and natural history of the whole route, and access to sites normally not open to the general public. There will be a detailed guidebook included as part of the tour. Tour package includes charter bus, breakfast, lunch, lectures, museums, park fees, fossil collecting, a guide booklet and hotels. Your trip fee also includes a $100 donation to the Skeptics Society. Seats are limited, so make your reservations soon!
