Southwest Parks

In this edition of our “See America” series, our adventure guide Steve Farrar will focus on the tremendous diversity within relatively short distances which highlights the group of Southwestern National Parks. Although all five of the parks we will visit are in desert ecosystems, the environments range from the 13,000’ elevation in Great Basin to the flats of Badwater Basin at 282 feet below sea level in Death Valley. Plants abound – Joshua trees, ancient bristlecone pines, and the veritable symbol of the West, the majestic Saguaro cactus. Saving the best for last, we will end up seeing the Grand Canyon top-to-bottom!

Join us as Steve takes us on a visual tour that includes some of the most iconic images found throughout the entire National Park system.
