Today is the day we venture into our first national park on the trip. With the sun coming up early and shining through the windows the boys are awake early and Ewan is sporting a puffy red right eye that he can't open. It's matched nicely with a number of bites on his cheeks, arms, hand and elbows and he looks as though something has found him very …
Goodbye San Diego, time to jump back in the car and drive out to the desert. Our destination today is 29 Palms, which is about an hour past Palm Springs and at the entrance to the Joshua Tree National Park. Today's plan, drive to the Desert Hills Premium Outlets, a spot of shopping and lunch, then to Palm Springs to ride the tramway before making …
One of my family members heard we were going to Joshua Tree National Park and made a point to call us the day we were there. She wanted to know how we were enjoying the hikes under the canopy of the Joshua Trees. Ha, ha, ha.
Established in 1994, Joshua Tree Park encompasses nearly 800,000 acres and includes two deserts. The Colorado Desert …
Marcus and Andy finally get to camp!!!!!
It was a perfect night, pretty warm, desert clear skies, and no creepy crawlies that we could see.
We dropped a tarp, rolled out our bags, and tried to have a fire. The only wood we had was from the original campground in Virgina, which we had been saving ...
... sneakers and found a nice bright jumper that the cashier forgot to ring up... To late we had left when I realised. Then went to the dollar tree store and guess what everything really is $1. Got a few essentials. Hit the road and went out to pioneer town. Saw an old western film set and then went to pappy and harriots for lunch..omg... Kids had hot dogs.. Not like ours... Amazing. I had nachos.. Hmmm now this is not even close to anything I have ...
How has this b&b rated in the past?
As I left the Joshua Tree forest and followed my GPS's directions across the desert, a foreboding came upon me that I was either very lost or I had made a very bad lodging error. I was literally in the middle of a vast desert, on a dirt road, with only small desert dwellings in my view. It was then I saw an Oasis. Literally, the Roughley Manor is set in the middle of an Oasis of extremely large palm trees forming the perimeter of the most delightful setting.
I enter the main stone home to the smell of baking chocolate chip cookies. I'm home. I had elected to stay in one of the two suites within the main house. The evenings would be chilly and there is a separate living room with a fireplace. The perfect setting for a romantic evening with my honey. The Magnolia Suite was well appointed, spacious and tastefully decorated. My wife, who has a keen eye, was truly impressed by the decorating of the entire home and a peak into a couple of the cottages that are on the grounds.
This home has been restored and maintained with meticulous loving care. It is a labor of love to attain and maintain the high quality I observed. Walking the grounds is like being in a fairytale. You could see the signs of attentive landscaping professionals everywhere and pathways were all recently cleaned and raked. Outdoor furnishings and settings are extremely comfortable and provide venues for couples or small groups to gather. The water features accent the entire setting to be just perfect.
Breakfast - The two we enjoyed were out of this world. Artfully crafted, the presentation and taste was five star quality.
I highly recommend a stay at the Roughley Manor to anyone who plans to visit the Joshua Tree National Forest or who has any other reason for being in the area
