This week we're thirsty for some fun in the sun. Here's how to live it up on your next day in the desert.
If snowboarding's not your thing, leave the mountains behind and drop in on a dune.
4. Dune Buggies
Who says go-carts aren't for grown ups? Take an off-road tour or take off on a high speed chase. Adventure is the name of the game.
5. Set up camp
Make a temporary home for yourself among the cacti, crystals, and stars.
6. Rock Climbing
Flex your muscles on one of the nearly 200 routes at Echo Cliffs for a day of premier climbing in SoCal. Make a bet with your bestie and race to the top; wager a case of Cactus Water to keep the stakes deliciously high!
7. Saddle Up
Add "A Horse with No Name" to your playlist, saddle up, and take the reins. Hoof your way through Afton Canyon, Morongo Valley, and Yucca Valley (all pictured below) for some awe-inspiring views.
8. Soak in the beauty
As you can see, the beach isn't the only place to relax with your toes in the sand; the desert has its own charms and enchantments.
We'll always have a soft spot for the desert, home of the prickly pear cactus.
