Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park is well loved by people in Southern California and it's famous for its stars. Mr. Misadventures and I spent a long weekend in Palm Springs in 2011 and visited the park but didn't spend a ton of time checking out every nook and cranny. Joshua Tree had seemed to elude my hubby, we had thought to visit when we were staying at Borrego Springs but it was just too far a … [Read more...]

Weekly Wanderings #49 – Surprise AZ

Merry Christmas Eve! The BIG day is tomorrow. Months of shopping and prepping and planning will be over.

Five Things to Do While Staying in Borrego Springs

We spent three weeks in Borrego-Springs, our first official stop for Project Escape. It could not have been a better location for us. Besides all the great stuff we did in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, we got out and explored beyond the park, even heading to San Diego for a day.  Our plan had been to head to Joshua Tree for a few days as well, but quite frankly we were enchanted by Borrego … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – An Afternoon at Seley Ranch

During our first week in Borrego Springs, Mr. Misadventures and I were immensely enjoying the local grapefruit. At least once a day on our way in or out of Borrego Springs, we drove by Seley Ranch. By the end of our first week, I was very interested about this farm so I reached out to them to see if they were amenable to a visit and interview. You see I was extremely curious about these farms … [Read more...]

Cruising around the Salton Sea

The Salton Sea story is a long one.  It ebbs and flows with many victories and defeats. There is a very detailed explanation about its natural history on Wikipedia, I won't repeat it here.  There is a briefer and more interesting version of its cultural history with great vintage photos on the Salton Sea Museum site. The truth is, this place is fascinating. There have been railroad towns, a … [Read more...]

7 Things to Do in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

It was a total fluke that we found the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We were Googling "RV parks in San Diego" and The Springs at Borrego RV Resort, where we ended up staying, came up. Which led us to Anza-Borrego.  Given that it is the largest park in the continuous 48 states (there must be something bigger in Alaska...) I find it odd that so many people (I checked) have never heard of … [Read more...]
