    Palm Springs

    Not up for those snowy mountain roads? Enjoy the California deserts! From luxurious resorts to secluded rustic hide-aways. Salt flats in baren lands to fields of joshua tress & wildflowers. Ghost towns & old mines, there is plenty to explore throughout the desert regions.

    Death Valley National Park

    The best time to enjoy Death Valley is in the cooler months (NOV-MAY), since the summer temperatures can reach beyond 100 degrees! Many spots for car camping on the deserted back roads. Wildrose Campground is an ideal location. Minimal rainfall in the desert makes this an ideal destination to escape from the winter & spring storms. Vast space with spectacular scenery! Wildflowers, ghost towns, beautiful canyons, sand dunes, scenic drives, old abandon mines, hiking, backroad exploration.

    Mojave Desert California

    The rural & secluded area known as the Mojave, is just the perfect spot to get away from it all. Plenty of clean air, space & open road with wonderful scenery.

    Palm Springs & Desert Hot Springs

    palm spring hikes

    Take a weekend to relax in the hot mineral baths of the local deserts. While Palm Springs offers all the upscale spas & glitz you could dream about, Desert Hot Springs is a much better deal. Ride the tram up to Mt. San Jacinto & enjoy the breathtaking views atop the 8000 foot station. Eat lunch in the restaurant & take a nature walk. Winter season may also see some snow & horse rides are available in warmer months. Visit the famous high desert area & enjoy some bizarre, but cool scenery at Joshua Tree National Monument.

    Desert Hot Springs, next door to Palm Springs, has the quaint resort of Lido Palms. This small hotel offers only a few rooms that share a spacious courtyard with various pool sizes & a BBQ area.
