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 ...
After the off-road adventure we were not quite sure what our next (and penultimate) destination should be. Andy was lobbying hard for a visit to Bombay Beach on the Salton Sea. But couldnt quite get enough support for adding additional hours to the trip. It would have put our arrival time in San Diego in a bit of jeopardy. So it was descided to head to Joshua Tree.
After a ...
... in excess of 2000 photos on their 2 month trip. GASP! Jil and I immediately roll our eyes and almost let out a sigh...... before Nick says that he has included only the most pertinent of them. WHEW!
Nick and Bev's account of their Alaska trip holds our undivided attention. They are informative and entertaining. Using the Milepost Magazine as a reference we could use its maps to place where the photos had been taken. That was nice. Our questions regarding the condition of the ...
This morning is nice and warm with little wind- a great day to visit Borrego Springs. We head east on Interstate 10 to highway 86S. We travel the outskirts of Indio, Coachella and Mecca through irrigated fields of date palms and grape orchards. Soil unturned by plows looks like it has a white crust. Is that mineral or salt- or both? Eventually a body of water comes into view. It's the Salton Sea by golly!

Midnight last night got a little rowdy- lots of gunfire from boneheads celebrating the New Year. These people don't understand that a bullet fired into the air has enough velocity to kill someone or something when it comes back to earth. Molly and Maverick were not happy with all the booms. Molly did her best imitation of a vibrator. Poor girl. Mav did a little better choosing to pant, pant, Pant, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Morocco Inn & Spa Desert Hot Springs
My husband and I just got back from our stay at the El Morocco and I just had to write a review about it.
Snuggled amidst a quiet and unassuming neighborhood in Desert Hot Springs, the facade of th El Morocco Inn emerges from the darkness like a desert oasis. Spectacularly illuminated, its rows of majestic palms sway in the night breeze, a welcome beacon upon our tired and road weary arrival.
This place is incredible. I simply can't say enough good things about our experience. Bruce, the proprietor is a super-frendly and accomodating host. The rooms are very well decorated and super comfortable. Nice bedding. The property is very warm, exotic and intimate. The amenities (i.e. spring-fed pool, huge hot tub and sauna) are ensconced in a courtyard that is literally steps from the door of each room. The continental breakfast was fresh with an excellent selection. The common areas, including the 'Casbah' lounge with a large-screen televsion for viewing the excellent selection of DVD movies is very comfortable and really adds a extra and welcomed dimension to the whole lodging experience. The overall vibe of this property is very nice. A++
One of the Best hotels in Palm Springs!!
1. Great Host - Made us feel really welcomed from the time we stepped into the hotel. We felt like we've known them for years after spending just 30 minutes with them.
2. Great Atmosphere - The Morocco theme was designed with an utmost detail. The drapes in the jacuzzi was a very nice touch.
3. Great Food - Throughout the stay, there were little snacks laying around everywhere. The Moroccotini was excellent! The breakfast was very well done as well.
Definately would go back again and again. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to relax and unwind in Palm Springs.
My lady and I needed a weekend of total relaxation and had never been to the Palm Springs area. All I really knew about that part of California was Joshua Tree. So I went online and searched for spas and inns nearby. One that caught my eye was the El Morocco Inn & Spa. The photos at palmsprings.com seemed cozy and romantic, so...
From the moment we walked into the door greeted by a most friendly and hospitable host, to the moment we had to sadly say goodbye, our experience at the El Morocco Inn and Spa was wonderful. We loved everything about the place; the intimate setting where we were able to mingle with other guests during a cozy happy hour (with complimentary 'morocco'tinis preceded by a traditional handwashing ritual); enjoying hookahs while lounging near the pool; indulging in a great (complimentary) breakfast spread; relaxing in the sauna or spa (massage services were also available);and admiring the beautifully decorated rooms, as close to Morocco as you can get. My favorite was the canopy surrounding the bed. I've never enjoyed accomodations with this much interest and enthusiasm; it was truly fun and unforgettable. I highly recommend a stay for anyone who needs to 'getaway.'
My wife and I travelled to Desert Hot Springs, CA from Orange County to discover a new boutique hotel and spa called the El Morocco Inn & Spa.
The El Morocco Inn is a treat! From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome and the hospitality never stopped. Our room was very comfortable and beautiful and had a cozy kitchenette which was decorated beautifully in the Moroccan theme. The hot springs pool and jacuzzi were just the right temperature and it was so relaxing to soak and then sit around the pool. Bruce and Steve were very attentive and made us delicious Morocco-tinis at the bar during happy hour. Bruce even made me a wonderful Morocco-Shirley-tini! We loved the hand washing with the rose water and the great conversation around the fire pit by the pool. We would heartily recommend a stay at the El Morocco,it is not to be missed.
It was strictly by chance that we, me and my boyfriend Patrick, ended up spending a valentine's get away in the desert's most attractive oasis: The Morocco Inn and Spa in Desert Hot Springs. It is truly a place of escape, very quiet and totally relaxing. Never have I met anybody more attentive and people friendly than the 2 hosts of the El Morocco: Bruce and Steve.
