Desert Hot Springs

lodginglodging reservations in Desert Hot Springs

A birthday celebration for a co-worker; A weekend in the desert in 1991. Who are these freaks? The factory direct stores sucked us in. As a college student, when you cannot afford Palm Springs, the neighboring community of Desert Hot Springs is a natural second choice. Big Morongo Canyon, Pioneertown and Joshua Tree National Park are all just up the hill from here.
