Extraordinary scenery abounds as the Jeep winds its way through the labyrinth of geological cuts and canyons of the San Andreas Fault Zone. Attendees will be entertained by the naturalist guide with stories about the plants, animals, geology, and history of the California desert. On this exciting 4WD adventure to the private Metate Ranch preserve on the San Andreas Fault, you will experience the twisted and tortured landscape of an active earthquake fault system. You will walk between the steep walls of deep canyons created by the powerful forces of plate tectonics, water, wind, and time. In addition, you will explore a natural palm oasis where crystal clear water bubbles up from the underground aquifer, and learn about the culture and lifestyle of the Cahuilla Indians and how they used the desert’s plants for food, medicine, tools, weapons, and shelter. This is a great way to discover the fascinating history of the Coachella Valley.
