... It rises and falls as if he is calling out, starting softly in snore-speak to get his wife's attention and near the end emphasizing the object or goal of his speech, 'honey, get me A BEER!!!' every 20 seconds. But he's nicely reposed, soft smile on his face, like a baby. No...more like that sleeping buddha - the one you may have seen pictures of from Thailand. I just can't disturb the buddha!....

Trees grow so close to one another that no sunlight reaches the earth on which they grow and it is cold walking amongst them.

We walked up canyon until we reached the Pacific Crest Trail. The southern terminus of the trail is the U.S./Mexico border and the northern terminus is the U.S./Canada border. It is 2663 miles long and ranges in altitude from near sea level to 13,153 in California's Sierra Nevada. We've been on the Pacific Crest a few times before, but as before just for a short distance. ...

After several months, Yerxa met an elderly Native American who described an Indian step-down well near Yerxa’s property. He found the well, but apparently the water was too alkaline to use.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Spring Resort & Spa Desert Hot Springs
OUTSTANDING!! This luxurious, private hotel and spa is exceptionally refreshing. From the moment you walk in you get a calm feeling that rushes over you. Barbara will greet you with a glass of water and show you around. There are only 9 rooms. The rooms have a bedroom and a kitchen. The sheets and bed are so comfortable it is hard to get out of bed. The sheets must be 600 thread count. Each room has a new gas stove, pots, pans, plates, glasses, bowls, silverwear, microwave, fridge,can and bottle openers. In the bedroom there is not only one of the most comfortable beds I have ever been in but they provide you with a small alarm clock and a stereo with a cd player and remote. The natural hot springs (there are 3 of them) come up out of the ground at 170 degrees. There is a hot tub (the hottest) then the soaking pool which is enclosed in a gazebo (the next warmest) and of course the pool (very refreshing) Each room is poolside and you can be in the water 24hours a day. There is true dry sauna open till 11pm. Robes are provided to each guest. You will not find a better staff. They are there to pamper you every need. The property is extremely well kept and the spa services are as 5 star as the rooms and hot springs. If you are going to the desert there is no better place to stay. I would highly recommend The Spring to anyone looking for a getaway!!!
The Ulimate Place to Relax
The Spring Resort and Spa has a remarkable attention to detail. From every angle the Spring relieves stress. My Wife and I spent 2 glorious nights and cannot wait to return. There is no other place to stay for relaxion in the Palm Springs area.
The best that the desert has to offer.
For peace and relaxation this place can't be beat.
This is the place to get away from it all in the desert without having to sacrifice any creature comforts.
The perfect place to unwind
The perfect place to unwind when have been stressed out to the maximum. Very nice setting, great pools, and with only nine rooms I would say quiet and calm best describe it. I had one of the best massages that I have ever had anywhere.
Peaceful and relaxing
My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Springs. We decided to get a kitchen and cook all our meals rather than having to get dressed and go to a restaurant. All we wore were 2 swim suites the whole time. We were so relaxed and at peace that we didn't even take advantage of the spa service. I love relaxing in water that feels absolutely fresh.
Just one negative. If you plan on any real cooking, bring a larger pan and a baking dish. Our hosts provided what we needed and we had a wonderful time.
The Ultimate Getaway
The Spring is the ultimate romantic getaway! We celebrated our anniversary there. Nine rooms surround a pool fed by natural hot mineral springs. Soft music and a bubbling fountain are the only sounds that break the serenity. The rooms have no telephones or televisions -- just bring a book, nap, soak in either an indoor or outdoor hot tub, dip in the pool or have a massage -- or never leave your room. My wife loved it! Located high up above the valley, you can look across at the snow covered mountains while swimming in the pool. What a trip! Pure relaxation! I recommend it highly.
That much needed quiet getaway
I have always been looking for that quiet place where I can be pampered and return home rejuvenated without going away for more than a a day or two. This is the place. I had a lovely room with a sumptuously comfortable bed overlooking a quiet pool. A beautiful indoor hot spring pool as well as one under the stars. Very quiet, only nine rooms, making it amazingly restful. A gifted spa staff that made by body feel like new. I will be spending a lot of time there.
My fiancee and I spent Valentine's Day weekend at The Spring. It took almost 3 hours to get from San Diego to Desert Hot Springs, but it was worth it. Upon our arrival we were surprised to find that the rooms have no televisions, only radios. There is a quiet living room with a fireplace that guests can sit in and relax. Clearly, the very best part of the The Spring, are the springs. The water is warm and cozy, and since there are only 9 rooms availble at this resort, you rarely share the water with anyone. I received a Clay wrap with massage combination, and it was wonderful! My fiancee received a 90 minute massage that he wished had gone the whole day. Close by is just about the biggest outlet sector I've ever been to, which was also fun. The best part of our trip was our dinner in La Quinta at The Cliffhouse. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT. Although it took about 25 minutes to get to the restaurant, it was well worth it. Lobster Bisque is a must! My one and very only complaint is that the resort is very remote...far from any attractions Palm Springs has to offer. Next time I'm pretty sure we will try to stay more in the city of Palm Springs...nonetheless, we would absolutely return to The Spring...it was truly relaxing and we had a hard time leaving.
Peace, Rejuvenation & Luxury
I've been to The Spring three times and each time have come away vowing to return soon. The water is extraordinary... as are the massage therapists. The place has tremendous serenity. The beds are outstanding and the atmosphere is peaceful... from the colors, to the music, to the views. I felt well-taken care of. My strongest memory of The Spring is just appreciating every minute.
Rejuvenation at The Spring
I recently spent a great weekend at "The Spring Resort & Spa" in Desert Hot Springs, California. It is a small (9 rooms), very private resort with beautifully tailored rooms with plush down comforters, pillows etc. It sits on one of the word's greatest Natural Hot Springs, so the water is very comforting and relaxing. I had a great massage and a great facial. They offer great Spa Packages as well. I highly recommend this oasis in the desert.
