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 ...
... open valley full of Joshua trees, with mountains surrounding it on all sides.It wasn't really much of a "forest" since the joshua trees don't grow very close to each other. But it was still stunning to drive down the road with joshua trees whizzing by on both sides. I also saw the biggest joshua tree of the whole trip here. It must have been 30 - 40 feet tall.

... of the canyon, but it does make life a bit easier to have horizontal ground as opposed to vertical ground to endure. The decent into the next canyon was nowhere near as bad as the adventure of climbing back up the previous canyon, but it was still quite steep. Worst-case scenario, Matt told us, we would slip on loose sand/rock/soil, land on our bums, and slide down a ways. This wasn’t unappealing to me, as Fiona and I had both discussed how tempting it was to sit ...
... warning signs on interstate 10 about dust storms but got off the highway to head to Salton Seas. The section of 10 after that near Palm Springs to Los Angles was closed down. The girl's brother was driving home from work and had to drive into the desert to get off the road and just park the car and hope no one would hit him. Everyone is saying the past few days of storms are some of the worst they have seen in over 50 ...
... three and half years have been some of the best and worst times of my life. Everything from sitting in a bush for 3 days in pouring rain in the jungles of Japan to sitting on a beach in the Philippines with Philipino Special Forces sharing a bottle of terrible brandy to finding myself on the roof of a Los Angles apartment building wearing nothing but shorts and a pair of bunny slippers. Those are all stories for a different time though and will probably end up on this ...
