town.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.

Rural resort community. Not as rich as it neighbor, Palm Springs, but pretty quiet, cheaper & more secluded. Hidden oasis motels with small cozy palm lined courtyards. Many clothing optional resorts in DHS.
