I teach “ Travel and Tourism” classes to high school students. I have spent over 20 years studying the Swell and the treasures found there. I am a veteran hiker and lover of nature. I grew up very close to the San Rafael Swell, which makes me a “local” to the area. I started hiking the Swell with my mother when I was a child, finding many Indian artifacts, Indian Rock Art, outstanding rock formations, and amazing landscapes. I have spent years hiking my backyard desert, exploring and enjoying the majestic views.
Light snacks such as granola bars, bananas, and crackers.
Unlimited water will be provided.
We will travel in a large 15 passenger tour van. Large windows make it possible to see the breath taking views along the way.
