A Trip To The Desert


The husband and I decided to go on a little getaway for our one year
anniversary.  We went to Palm Springs.  What a fun adventure it was.  We stayed
at La Quinta Resort and
.  The grounds are gorgeous and the staff was amazing.  We did lots of
lounging by the beautiful pool.
I have always wanted to check out Joshua Tree
(the inner-hippie in me).  We decided to take one day and go explore the “ghost
town”.  We stopped as soon as we arrived in Joshua Tree, to grab some food, at a
really great place called Crossroads Cafe.  The small cafe reminded me of a struggling
musician hangout, with really chill folks.  The food was delicious.  lots of
vegan items and smoothies, along with some yummy sandwiches.  After exiting the
cafe we drove 1/2 a block to the entrance of Joshua Tree National
.  Wow!  The most amazing place I have ever been.  We drove 12 miles and
reached 5600ft, to see the most beautiful view.  I suggest checking this place
out.  You will not be disappointed.  After gawking for a good hour, we headed
back to Palm Springs to relax some more before going home.
This was the
perfect little getaway.  Thank you, husband.
PS Palm Springs had a Target and
Homegoods store, which I had to stop at, because as you know (or may not know),
Santa Barbara has neither.
