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

... a big difference to the farmers down stream on the Colorado river but also gave LA a reliable water supply and energy source. I think the Mexicans who are at the end of the river do feel a bit short changed in the equality of the distribution. The international Lawyers probably got their retirement packages working out the share in the distribution of the water rights.
It was pretty cool (literally) being inside the dam wall which is about 600 feet ...
On the drive down to Joshua Tree, I was very thankful to have GPS in my rental car. For once I hadn’t really planned much in advance, and just had a general idea of which way to go. There’s no direct route to Joshua Tree from Vegas, and it required some back country highways. So it wasn’t on the maps very well. But the GPS made it really easy. I actually took highway I-15 at first, heading southwest out of Vegas. Then I headed directly south ...
... other as I was able to walk on just my legs instead of all fours the majority of the way and most of the rocks were more stable. The difficult part came from already walking and climbing for more than three hours and being sore, exhausted, and almost out of water. It was an incredible feeling when I reached the top, as I just knew that the vehicle would be waiting for us, and our hike would be done.
No vehicle in sight. We all continued on ...
... Forest ended his run across America. As Monument Valley is in the Navajo Indian Reserve everything is run by the Navajo. This is one of the biggest Indian Reserves in the USA. The drive through Monument Valley is not suited for RV’s so we arrange to do a half day tour the next day. On this tour you get to see all the famous red rock monuments like the left and right Mitten, the Buttresses and of course the John Wayne viewpoint. We relax a bit in ...
... early bird, and wake up at 5:00 A.M. Dad hiked the trail to get some good pictures. On the hike he got stabbed by a cactus. The park information says that it is the worst cactus to get pricked by because when it goes in there are barbs that prevent it from coming back out. I had to go back to the RV to get some pliers for him because ...
