There's a sublime grace in the flight of a raptor. It's a grace that the birders of Ronin Air Falconry Service hold dear. So to spread their feeling of awe, they host falconry shows and raptor demonstrations, teaching both raptor biology and the history of falconry. Not only are these shows tailored to each group's age, but they send birds flying freely overhead to both inspire them and help them learn how to identify bird bellies in the wild. For those whom the falconry bug bites—and it's likely to bite anyone—group and private sessions divulge how to handle and fly a team of hawks, hunting falcons, and eagle owls. And so that team doesn't get bored—and so others don't lace the environment with poison—Ronin Air Falconry Service also uses its raptors to remove bird pests, relying on the environmentally friendly technique of predator versus prey.

Hot desert air churns in from the distant dusty hills, but it’s given no quarter at Destination Academy Cosmetology School. Here, turquoise walls and porthole-shaped mirrors evoke the feel of a vessel bobbing in the water of a cool oasis. Though the spa-salon’s windows reveal sweeping views of the mountains, its private treatment rooms shield clients from the desert sun with candlelight, tubs big enough for two, and a choice of seven kinds of aromatherapy including french lavender and new handbag. On the second floor, expert stylists—some of whom may be alumni of Destination Academy, the salon’s nationally accredited training program—use Moroccanoil and Pureology to shape cuts to individual faces and style preferences.
