High Desert Cabin: Welcome to My New Desert Hideaway


North of Joshua Tree the high desert landscape opens up, falling away from the San Bernardino mountains towards distant dry arroyos and lake beds. In this area, small homestead cabins were built in the 1950's and 60's mostly by families on the other side of the mountains, 2 hours away in the Los Angeles basin.

This is were my cabin sits, out in the open desert with creosote bushes to soften the sandy landscape. The views that surround it make for an endless day of sky, sun and shadows, clouds and winds. The desert slope here washes gradually down, like a tilted table top you can't quite get even. Look for the light blue rooftop to find the cabin.
