Winter Warmth

Nighttime temperatures in Joshua Tree dropped, hours of daylight diminished and high winds swept through the campground.

Time to search for a warm spot to spend the holidays. After thorough research – okay, we looked at accuweather for several locations – we chose the Palm Springs area. Even better, we found an RV resort with pools, hot tubs and other fun things to do.

We swam, hot-tubbed, rode bikes, ate, drank bubbles on Christmas, ate at a couple restaurants, met lots of Canadians and even worked out at the fitness center.

Just in case you think we spend all our time playing, here is evidence of a few chores. Okay, the first photo is evidence of others doing our chores.Detail

Palm Springs delivers more than just palm tree oases. The San Jacinto mountains surround the area. TramwaySign

Us
The Palm Springs area grows on us with every visit. RV resorts are a fun respite from rustic campgrounds and boondocking.

After more than a week of luxury and a New Years visit to San Francisco, the Anza Borrego desert called our names. Speaking of names – after much discussion and bonding – the van shall be named Miles (hip-hop version Mylz).
