"It's big (100 miles wide by 240 miles long), it's diverse (granite peaks, extinct volcanoes, sand dunes, and more than 2,000 species of plants and 500 animals), and it makes for a wonderful, inexpensive vacation. The California desert offers bird watching and backpacking, high alpine snow fields and dry salt plains, and when the rains are adequate, miles of wildflowers that take your breath away. Lynne Foster's guide makes it accessible, with desert safety tips, maps, information about public campgrounds, historical sites, and desert museums, as well as useful information such as where to get food, water, and gas. From the White-Inyo Mountains, through Death Valley, Palm Springs, and Joshua Tree National Park, down to the Mexican border, the desert awaits, sere and stark, but not at all barren."
