What you'll do

Welcome to the high desert! Most folks are unaware that dogs are not allowed on the trails in Joshua Tree National Park. If you are like me and you can't imagine hiking without your furry friend/s, that's a huge bummer. But you are in luck because I've spent the last few years seeking out the best dog-friendly hiking trails in the high desert! On top of that, I'm a professional portrait photographer, so not only will you have the opportunity to explore some of the most scenic and breathtaking off-beaten hiking trails near Joshua Tree with your faithful companion, you'll also walk away with some very memorable (professionally shot & edited) photos of you and your pup's adventure in the high desert. A few days after your experience, you'll receive two high-res digital photos of your desert exploration with the option of purchasing more once you peruse the online gallery of images from your dog day in the desert. (Note: Couples Bookings include 5 photos & Family Bookings include 10!) PLEASE NOTE: This experience is an alternative experience to hiking in the National Park! It takes place in and around Joshua Tree NOT the National Park. WEATHER: The desert is notoriously unpredictable in terms of weather, so PLEASE dress appropriately! Hikes are only canceled for a refund if the weather is unsafe: temps above 100 degrees, winds above 25mph, or rain that might damage equipment

Hello! I’m a professional photographer, designer, and filmmaker based in the Mojave Desert. I'm also the host of the popular 5-star AirBnb Experience "Joshua Tree Sunset Hike & Photoshoot." When I'm not shooting or editing images for a client, I spend my free time exploring the numerous beautiful hiking trails in and around Joshua Tree with my two miniature Australian Shepards, Caray and Bella. Before relocating to the desert, I owned and operated my own photography and design studio in St. Paul, MN and have almost twenty years as a professional photographer under my belt. I love dogs, photography, and the outdoors and I can't wait to share this unique and beautiful landscape with you and your pup/s!

Where you'll be

This hike can be more about the hike, or more about the photos, or a combination. ALL HIKES TAKE PLACE APPROX 1 HOUR BEFORE SUNSET. A few days before your experience, I will send a list of options and we can decide together what trail best suits your interests/needs as well as a firm meeting time. It really is a choose-your-own adventure! And whatever you choose, you get a hike & professional portrait session in one!

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

This hike can be more about the hike, or more about the photos, or a combination! It's really up to you. If you don't feel like hiking and just want some photos of you and your dog = totally doable!
