2014 BORREGO FEST
October is near and it's time to start planning for our biggest annual event. Join us in the Anza Borrego Desert for 3 days of camping, 4x4 trail runs, and hiking. We will also be offering Amateur Radio License testing on Sunday for all levels from 10:00 AM to noon. The "not to be missed" pot luck dinner and campfire will be on Saturday evening.
This is a family friendly event and an opportunity for us to meet the family members we never get to see on the trail and a chance to make new friends.
This year we will be located at the Butterfield Ranch Resort, located just outside the Park boundary. The Ranch is equipped with full hookups for RVs, plenty of tent camping, showers, and a well stocked store. For more information on all of the events, including, 4x4 trail runs, camp directions, Ham Radio testing and to sign up, click here.

Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument
Just south of St George, Utah lies one of the most scenic and remote areas in the US - the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument. It covers a vast area by itself, but it is seamlessly connected to both the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and the Grand Canyon National Park. Combined, there are thousands of miles of off pavement roads to explore.
Approximately 100 miles south of St. George you will find the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Be prepared, however, for very remote and sometimes difficult conditions, but the rewards are some of the most spectacular views and wilderness that can be found anywhere.
