In all of my years of living in LA, I’ve never once been to Joshua Tree. When my bestie and sorority little sister Liz suggested we take a few days off to escape to the quaint little city and enjoy some overdue quality time, I couldn’t say no!
We loaded up my car and headed out of town for a few glorious days in the desert and had a spectacular time.
The best part of escaping to a small, sleepy town is that there are few distractions and time truly slows down.
Liz and I enjoyed long nature walks in our neighborhood, explored the national park (where we did some light hiking and a lot of photo shooting!), sampled the local eateries and chilled out around our adorable Airbnb. I couldn’t have asked for a better travel companion and our accommodations were just too cute. Best of all, I slept like a rock and felt so refreshed each morning. Goes to show you that a little R&R does the body good.
