Mojave National Preserve

Polish comes from the cities; wisdom from the desert.
— Frank Herbert
Spectacular Landscape in Absolute Solitude 
Experience the tranquility of being at one with nature in this dramatic terrain. Let the vastness of the open land transport you far away from civilization and into a world of tranquility.
Mojave National Preserve is one of the largest national preserves within the continental U.S. Experience the great outdoors in its most untamed, unfiltered form.

Mojave National Preserve is nature's playground. It features canyons and mountains, former military mines and outposts, and opportunities to explore year-round.

Rose-colored sand dunes, volcanic cinder cones, Joshua tree forests, and carpets of wildflowers are all found at this 1.6-million-acre park. A visit to its canyons, mountains, and mesas will reveal long-abandoned mines, homesteads, and rock-walled military outposts. For visitors looking for a break from nearby major metropolitan areas, the Mojave offers true peace and quiet.
