Desert Survivors touring Mission San Antonio De Padua during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) October 2015.
This year we met at one of the most remote and least developed of the
California missions, San Antonio De Padua, located in Monterey
County. In this photo, the mission's administrator Joan Small
leads our group to the ruins of a grist mill––where in the
late-1700's/early 1800's water was diverted from a nearby creek to turn
a grinding wheel inside this building. Desert Survivors sponsors
trips to intruiging places in the western deserts. Become a
member and join us in our wilderness and historic sites adventures.

& UPCOMING EVENTS
THE FALL 2015 TRIP SCHEDULE IS HERE!
Fall brings shorter days and a cooling of temperatures in the
deserts. So lets back out there. We have car camps galore
with excursions to the Mid-Hills in the Mojave National Preserve and
Gold Butte in Clark County Nevada in September. In October our
Annual General Meeting will take place at Mission San Antonio de
Padua in Monterey County. Camping is NOT offered to the general public
at this site, hence a rare opportunity for Desert Survivors to be
surrounded by a part of our rich California history. Late-October
thru November we are sponsoring three terrific car camps: 1. To the
Volcanic Tablelands with its rich petroglyphs and Benton Hot Springs,
2. An artists trip to Death Valley, 3. A car camp to a proposed
national monument in the eastern-Mojave. The season will end with
our annual holiday party on December 5, 2015. Join us for the fun
of these trips and events. Please go to the TRIPS PAGE for more info.
