Living in L.A. means I'm lucky enough to be a couple quick hours away from one of my favorite places in California: Joshua Tree National Park. Just a few weeks ago, some friends and I headed out to Joshua Tree for the weekend to celebrate a birthday. We stayed in a dream-come-true AirBnB rental near the park by the name of "El Rancho Loco". We survived on guacamole, tequila-pineapple juice-agave cocktails, and red velvet cupcakes for two days and spent our nights using the Star Chart app to find our favorite constellations in the clear desert sky.
It's always nice to get out of the city for a few days to connect with your inner tree hugger... just don't try to hug a Joshua Tree. They are surprisingly prickly.
