canyons on horseback, across gentle creeks to breathtaking views; or enjoy
nature's beautiful San Jacinto Mountains. For a unique aerial view, ride a mile-high canopied
parachute; soar & glide on a motor-less flight over the desert; or marvel at
beautiful sunsets in an amazing balloon flight.

along the sand dunes on Quad Bikes; or explore the mud volcanoes of California's largest
lake, the Salton Sea.
