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

... for an interesting morning ride. With few options, we head west to California on the I10 and encounter gusting crosswinds that limited my speed to a pedestrian 70mph which separated me from the herd. My only concern with this situation was - my mobile was on recharge in a mate's saddlebag as I watch them disappear over the horizon. We did however meet up at the General Patton Museum in Chiriaco sometime later...much to my relief. After lunch with the General, we left the ...
... take the time. But it looked awesome, so I made a mental note to come back later.
- Skull Rock: This was an awesome rock that looked like a skull, including two eye sockets and a nose. The rock was cool, but the surrounding rocks were even cooler. There was also a nature trail here, and I made another note to come back later.
- Queen Valley: This was the first real joshua tree forest that I drove through, and it was incredible. It was a ...
... towards us. Talia had ran off for one more hug from Nana and Papa and Jess encouraged her to hurry-- no shoes on and a hug so sincere. A perfect end really.
We were only travelling some 250 km. or so to Indio. Highways 67 to 52 to 15 to 79 to 371 to 74. Naturally being a Friday afternoon the 15 saw traffic increase but we lost some after a bit on the 79 but it also turned into a single lane highway. We love those over the multi-lane highways ...
... and we even get some rain! First time on this trip that we had some serious clouds and precipitation. The next morning we leave the clouds behinds us when we cross a mountain range and it is blue skies again as we are heading for Grand Canyon. We stop on the way in Cameron Trading Post. You immediately get introduced to the fact that you are going to one of the most popular National Park in the USA. Busloads of people are having a lunch break ...
... RV we saw a jackrabbit. It was too quick to get a picture of so we went in the RV to have a yogurt. Then we drove to a place where you can climb rocks. My dad, Madison, and I went up on the rocks. Katelyn decided that she didn’t want to go up, so she climbed up a different rock but couldn’t get down. I got really high ...
