Trek a total of 22 miles through the magical desert landscape of Pioneertown in California. We’ll pass stunning boulder fields, find ancient petroglyphs, eat delicious meals, and sleep under the stars. On our first night, we’ll camp near the Sand to Snow National Monument, a preserve that features sweeping buttes and diverse vegetation. We’ll then trek to a farm, pitch our tents there, and visit with the friendly goats. We’ll see diverse wildlife, from jackrabbits to coyotes, and learn about edible and medicinal desert plants along the way.
As a nature-loving chef with an insatiable curiosity, I've spent the past three years studying and cooking with the edible and medicinal flora of the Mojave desert. In 2016, I founded High Desert Test Kitchen, a wild foods educational project that brought together members of our local community on a monthly basis to learn how to cook with plants from this region. This past year, I started Hole in the Sand, my platform for immersive wild foods dining events, and I began to lead plant identification hikes with Airbnb Experiences. I'm an avid backpacker and have been hooked on the sport since my first summit at age 13. I've completed backcountry survival and bushcraft courses with the Thomas Coyne Survival School, and have an up-to-date certification in Wilderness First Aid. I'm excited to introduce you to this magical place I call home!
