Deserts Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
California's deserts are a study in contrasts: Golden eagles and red-tailed hawks soar above crawling sidewinders and desert tortoises. Mountain ranges composed of nothing but bare, jagged rock rise abruptly out of flat, sun baked basins, the land sparsely covered by aromatic shrubs and bizarrely twisted Joshua trees. Burning-hot days can turn into freezing nights. And in springtime, amid the deserts' broad duotone of sun-colored earth and bright blue sky, flowery bursts of hot pink and lipstick red sprout from tough cactus leaves. With it's raw and challenging environment coupled with some of the world's best golf courses and resorts, the desert is an unparalleled playground.
