A Few Days In The Desert

  


  



 The husband and I decided to go on a little getaway for our one year anniversary (time flies when you’re having fun).  We went to Palm Springs.  What a fun adventure it was.  We stayed at La Quinta Resort and Club.  The grounds are gorgeous and the staff was amazing.  We did lots of lounging by the beautiful pool.
I have always wanted to visit 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 Park.  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.
