Palm Springs + Joshua Tree | California Travel Photographer

Last May I had the chance to sneak off to Palm Springs with two of my oldest girlfriends. It was GLORIOUS. The sun, the heat, the views and the company! We stayed at the Ace Hotel which was pure joy! I highly recommend it to anyone who has been wanting to go. Great service, fun rooms (with super comfy beds + communal fireplaces), plus a badass pool with some tasty drinks. Just perfect.

After a few days of hanging around and exploring Palm Springs, we decided that we needed to hit the road. We smashed our burger craving at In-N-Out, and headed for Joshua Tree National Park. WOW. The Joshua Trees appear to be from another planet, and the beauty of the park is almost overwhelming. This was my first time in the California Desert and it did not disappoint. We ended our day with dinner and drinks at Pappy and Harriets, which might be the the coolest western dive saloon in all of California.

Overall Palm Springs is super easy to get around, and full of friendly faces.  I’ll be dreaming of all the minty pastel greens and dreamy sapphire blues for many days to come……….

If you’re loving these desert pics as much as me, the good news is you can purchase a print! Head over here to see a full gallery of the ones available:
