The Desert Mountain, “where the sand meets the snow,” meets quarterly at various locales depending on the season and graciousness of its members. This chapter is the largest, geographically, of the CSMFO chapters. Generally located East of the Sierras and North of San Bernadino, it also includes the highest (Mt. Whitney) and lowest (Death Valley) points in the state. Members who regularly attend meetings include the cities/towns of Apple Valley, Barstow, Big Bear Lake, Hesperia, Lancaster, Palmdale and Victorville. Other members, geographically challenged by our vast territory, attend less frequently. Still we would like to say that we “have the most fun and are the friendliest” of all the chapters.
