Queen Mountain lies off the beaten path waiting for those who desire adventure. Mark Wheeler will discuss the ecology, geology, and cultural history of the Mojave Desert as the class travels through cacti rich slopes, Joshua tree forest, and dramatic rock formations. The class will summit Queen Mountain and from the top, participants will view spectacular scenery including the Wonderland of Rocks, Lost Horse Valley and San Gorgonio Mountain, walking through a complex wash system surrounded by boulder towers. Participants should be fit and prepared for a strenuous, eight mile hike with rock scrambling and a minimum elevation change of 2,400 feet.
