We flew into Seattle from Stockholm for 3 weeks of work. When we where finished we headed down to LA for 2 days and rented a car and drove into the desert!!! As we started to drive up the mountain from Palm Springs we couldn't believe our eye's, what a landscape. As we drove through Joshua Tree for the first time we felt as we had gone back in time, a friendlier and nicer time! When we drove up the dirt road to Spin & Margies we were surrounded buy the warm colors of the buildings that make up the compound. We were greeted by Margie herself with great warmth and humor. We loved our own little building with a very private backyard with a fantastic view of the mountains. The room was just great with fantastic colors and all the right details, great bed, perfect little kitchen, Dvd player/ flat screen TV, internet that worked and very nice bathroom!
We quickly started to explore the fantastic Joshua Tree National Park with some great tips from our hosts. The park was fantastic for light hikes and easy climbs to very serious outings that we will have to try when we come back. There was good food shopping in the near by towns so we were able to have a few nice dinners back at Spin and Margies where we had a great Barbeque grill. There was a good selection of restaurants in and around Joshua Tree. We also found time for a some local shopping. We can't wait to go back and stay with Spin and Margie again.
