We were not planning on coming this way after leaving LA area. Our plan was to head to Vegas after Soledad Canyon and spend three weeks there so that we could celebrate New Years there and take care of some errands in the area (yeah funny, going to Vegas to run errands haha… The RV life!)
But when we were at Soledad Canyon, we made the decision to head to Palm Springs for a few days and then to Vegas for New Years… and we are very glad we did, Palm Springs was awesome. So much to do for the outdoor lovers like us, a lot of nice MTB trails, hiking trails and just a great area in general. The RV Park was pretty cool. Palms everywhere! We loved it!
While staying here, we got to do some mountain biking and some awesome hiking around the area. the mtb trails are awesome but most of them are also for hiking, which makes it a challenge to ride them because there are tons of people (at least when we were there) hiking. We rode our bikes on day and saw that it might be best to do the other trails we wanted to do, by foot, so on went our hiking shoes and we hit the trails for a few days 🙂 There are some cool trails that take you along some Palm Oasis… something different and new to us for sure.
Back in the city, there was a Christmas event going on that is pretty famous around these areas… it is a Christmas decoration showcase that is pretty hard to describe haha, it is crazy looking, exotic, weird, impressive, awesome, and so much more haha.
And of course, there is also a gem close to Palm Springs that we checked out, Joshua Tree National Park! What an incredible place!!! We drove very early one day from our RV Park to be able to enjoy a whole day there, with the idea that if we really liked it and the weather was nice, we would back again and tent camp… We did LOVED it, but the weather was a bit too cold for one of us (Rubi) so, we enjoyed the entire day exploring the park and back to our RV we went 🙂
That is the thing with the RV life, there is always so much to do, so much to see and explore, and sometimes, unless you are willing to spend weeks, or even months, in a particular area, it is very hard to see everything, so you kind of have to prioritize and move on…. We enjoyed our time in this area and will be coming back for sure!
