Deserts is majestic, powerful places to visit, and contrary to popular notions, they
aren't just barren landscapes. Deserts are very much alive, and they host a
wide range of fascinating plants and some animals. But the landscape should be
taken lightly, and it requires campers to follow a different set of rules than
they might in more mild environs.

The desert is a place of extremes. Many desert regions get very hot during the day, but they can also be
very cold at night, meaning that you'll have to plan and pack for both.

Staying hydrated and finding enough water are the most obvious and pressing concerns when you're spending a significant amount of time in the desert, but there are other things to keep in
mind. For one thing, landmarks can be few and far between, and trails can be
difficult to find, making it easy to get disoriented and lost.

Many deserts are also home to a number of hazardous creatures, like venomous snakes, that can really spoil your vacation
