1. New-found and like-minded friends and acquaintances. Just 12 participants are accepted for each course and adventure. Train, prep, and explore together. We act as a team.
2. THREE natural wonders with unique geological formations and breathtaking vistas at every turn. Accept the challenge to hike the Sonoran Desert, Red Rock Country & Grand Canyon. Plus, a few man-made wonders too!
3. Our entire adventure provides a sensory-rich environment. Vast open spaces, the sound of rushing water, the feel of the sun and desert breeze, and striking visual contrasts of colors and shapes as far as the eye can see.
4. College and adult life can be busy and overwhelming. There are ample opportunities to find quiet spots away from the crowds for introspection and peaceful reflection. Recharge!
