"The haunting melody of a howling wolf pack is heard in only a handful of states, as wolves have been exterminated from a vast majority of their original range," explains the California Wolf Center's website. Though these howling cries are harder to find than they once were, one place to witness their grandeur is at the California Wolf Center.

The non-profit was founded in 1977 to educate the public about wildlife and ecology, specifically the history and behavior of the gray wolf. Located 50 miles east of San Diego, it houses two subspecies of wolves: the Alaskan gray wolf and the endangered Mexican gray wolf. The center also participates in the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan, which aims to help the endangered species recover in the wild. At the facility, wolves live in enclosures that can help retain their natural behavior, as some of them will eventually be released back into the wild.

The wide wheelbase of Jeep Rubicons kicks up age-old dust as they trundle across the dry open vistas of the desert. Inside, Borrego Jeep Photo Tours' guides describe local flora and fauna as they reveal the arid land's most spectacular natural formations such as Coyote Canyon or Split Mountain. They provide passengers with complimentary bottles of cold water and snacks on tours that last anywhere from two to six hours. Professional photographer Aaron Dennis accompanies every tour on their journey, providing guests with in-the-field photographic instruction as they capture their own images as keepsakes.

As a thin teen, Peter San Nicolas turned to bodybuilding to buff up his physique, which gained him praise from ESPN’s American Muscle. Then in 1989, Peter channeled that motivation into establishing Ramona Fitness Center, a two-story workout facility for members 21 and over. Now, nearly 25 years later, Peter and his team of dedicated personal trainers and fitness instructors are still motivating others to lose excess weight and tone bodies through personal-training lessons, small-group sessions, and 18 group-fitness courses. Instructors get students’ heart rates pumping during Turbo Kick sessions, which meld kickboxing and intense interval training. Additionally, Core and More classes take 30 minutes to focus on ab work without attempting to do yoga while wearing a suit of steel-plate armor.

The facility is also packed with modern workout equipment that ranges from the ellipticals and spin bikes that line the loft-style second floor to the free weights that fill the ground level. The upscale fitness center is also outfitted with a retail area stacked full of vitamins and supplements.

A PGA-certified instructor that utilizes video and motion-analysis technology, Craig Frank formulates individualized plans to help his students boost their golf game. His training regimens typically begin with a 90-minute session that covers the entire swing, from correctly lining up with the golf ball to finishing with a graceful pirouette follow-through. Meanwhile, JC Video ARC-20 video technology captures every movement of the player's swing, allowing for later review and comparison with the swing mechanics of more than 1,000 professional golfers.

Grown across 43 picturesque acres in the Valley of the Sun, eight varieties of grapes grow plump on the estate vines of Mahogany Mountain Vineyard and Winery. Hand-picked, crushed, pressed, and tucked away to develop, these grapes transform into syrah, zinfandel, and port, just to name a few of the winery's varietals. Inside the tasting room or out on the shaded patio, visitors can get a taste of these labors, trying sips of the different styles of wine or ordering them by the glass.
