Hank Leukart and his brother, Brian, tackle the Wonderland of Rocks and the peak of Queen Mountain in Joshua Tree National Park. Emboldened by their successful trip, Hank returns to the Park, with five friends, to attempt a one-way traverse across the desert through Rattlesnake Canyon and up Ryan Mountain.
