Future Trips

Here we list trips scheduled by the Desert Explorers for the near and distant future. Also listed are some trips that are organized and led by our members but which do not require membership in the Mojave River Valley Museum (MRVM) and are, therefore, not MRVM-sponsored Desert Explorer trips.

Some trips, such as those involving stays at private residences or visits to obscure rock art sites, are posted only in the Desert Explorers' Newsletter. Conversely, some impromptu trips will be posted here and not in the Newsletter.

All trip participants will be required to sign our waiver.

Bristlecones, White Mtns & Chalfant Valley

Thursday-Saturday – August 16-18, 2018

Take off early Thursday from Big Pine to Wyman Canyon, the 'back way' to the ridge of the White Mountains and the Bristlecone Pines. Camp overnight and relax next day creekside in Cottonwood Basin. Early Saturday departure down Silver Creek Canyon to Chalfant Valley for a full day loop of rock art sites. Due to the Eastern Sierra location of this trip, we suggest adding it to the beginning or end of a longer vacation trip. 4WD high clearance vehicle and CB required. Expect HOT daytime temps 90-100¡ in the low altitudes and coolish 40-50¡ nights in the high altitudes. Additional info will be forthcoming in the August DE newsletter.
