I spent a week back in the desert last month. However, this time we were able to introduce a few of our best friends to our favorite place. The week included Bloody Marys for breakfast, hiking through Joshua Tree, a sunset evening at Salvation Mountain, renting motorcycles and riding down to San Diego, and of course, many a days lounging by the pool. The desert is truly my favorite escape.

“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams.”
