Enjoy Stargazing in the Desert!

Witness the transition from day to night on this exciting 4WD adventure that adds stargazing to our popular San Andreas Fault Jeep Tour.  Travel to our private and pristine Metate Ranch on the San Andreas Fault, where you will learn about the desert’s plants, animals, history, geology, and earthquakes from your professional naturalist tour guide. 

On your journey, you will visit a natural palm oasis, explore spectacular box and slot canyons, and view an ancient fossil bed as your Jeep winds its way through the incredible labyrinth of geological cuts and canyons of the San Andreas Fault Zone.

As the sun sets, witness the spectacular transition from day to night as the light casts amazing shadows and colors on the hills. Desert sunsets are magical, so be sure to bring your camera!

When the sky darkens, you are treated to a fascinating stargazing journey through the night sky as you view stars, planets, and constellations through the lens of a high-powered telescope.
