Took a quick trip to Palm Springs a few weeks ago to celebrate the birthday of our good friend Tracy. The dude and I decided to drive there and left the city at 5am for the 8 hour cruise to the desert. I was over the moon excited when as we were almost hitting PS, I spotted the dinosaurs from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure right there off the side of the I-10. The dinos are one of those random things I’ve always wanted to see and got to unexpectedly check off my lifetime to-do list.
After the 3-day party at our rented ‘Palm Springs Villa’ – we headed to Joshua Tree and stayed the night in the Donovan Suite at the Joshua Tree Inn. Famous for the overdose and death of Gram Parsons, fans continue to come and keep his memory alive with a permanent shrine that includes 1/2 bottles of whiskey & packs of cigarettes.
Next up – an adventure to Salvation Mountain, an amazing spectacle of religious messages painted all over a man-made mountain by Leonard Knight.
We ended the trip with 2 hour drive all around the Salton Sea, California’s biggest body of water. Once a popluar vacation destination, the Salton Sea is now surrounded by almost nothing. Tiny towns practically deserted all but for what feels like a hand full of people. Stretches of abandoned and burned out trailers, rotting signs and broken windows. I’m now dying to see this documentary narrated by John Waters.
