My name is Henry and I will be your personal driver and tour guide today on this unique AirBnB experience in the California lower desert. I used to travel out to the desert many years ago before it has become what it is today, just to see all the different flora, fauna and fun geological parts of the desert. I mostly liked the parts of the desert that were inaccessible to the general public and as a keen 4WD enthusiasts those are the trails I would go to explore off-road and have been for the past several years full-time taking groups out to see this amazing land in the California desert.
