Mojave Desert

We very much enjoyed our journey through Mojave while traveling from Las Vegas to Joshua Tree National Park! This desert is found mostly in Nevada and California and stretches up a bit up into Utah and down to Arizona near Havasu. Highways that cross the Mojave are Interstate 15, Interstate 40, U.S. Route 95, U.S….

Joshua Tree National Park

I’ve always wanted to see those unmistakable, super unique Joshua Trees in person. Thanks U2 🙂 We traveled the 3.5 hours from Vegas through the desolate and eerily fascinating Mojave desert where you will indeed get a taste of what lies ahead. I’m not sure if you’re not a die hard National Park geek that…

White Sand National Monument

We could’ve stayed for hours and hours, even all night to camp which can be done in many, many campgrounds in…

Robert’s Western World 

Robert’s Western World was everything I thought a Honky Tonk would be… a tad edgy, dark, filled with nostalgia and history, crowded and absolutely rockin’.  It took a few minutes for us to find a seat here at the infamous Robert’s Western World right on Broadway. It was a hair awkward because I had the…

Badlands National Park 

The Badlands are pretty badass. I’m not going to lie, I was a little scared of them, but equally intrigued. I kept reading things that said “they don’t call them ‘bad’ for no reason”. Uh….What? OY! I get it….They’re basically just a desert. There’s no shade. At all. There are rattlesnakes. It’s desolate. It’s miles…
