Look north and east, beyond the mountains that surround Los Angeles – it’s a desert out there. Actually three – Sonora, Mohave, and Great Basin – and they provide numerous opportunities for hiking and camping.  Completion of this training is recognized by the award of a special patch and is a requirement for earning the High Adventure Leader Award.
