The Saguaro, Palm Springs, CA

Palm Springs is one of those places I will be traveling to for the rest of my life. If I could, I would move there in a heart beat. I'm in love with the vibe, lifestyle, landscape, architecture and so many other aspects of this desert gem of a city. I'm personally making it my goal to stay at a different hotel or rental each time I visit. I previously posted about The Movie Colony Hotel (check out the post here) that I absolutely loved, but we went a little more loud and colorful this time.

The Saguaro is the most colorful hotel in Palm Springs!!! Every wall, door and piece of flooring is a different color through out the entire hotel; it's a photographers dream! The pool area is so fun, I felt like I was in Las Vegas with the Hip DJ and poppin' bar. They also offer free bicycle rentals so you can take a cruise around the neighborhood. By far my favorite amenity is that The Saguaro is a pet friendly motel!!!! There was no extra fee for us to bring Chunky on this adventure. 

So do yourself a favor: book a room (they often post on Groupon), take some shots in their tequila bar, dip in the pool and enjoy all that is The Saguaro Palm Springs!

Mammoth, CA Highlights

For as much as I love to snowboard, I have never been to Mammoth until a few weeks ago, and it wasn't even for the snow! Being able to experience Mammoth in the summertime was never something that I "needed" to do but I am glad I had the opportunity. I loved it so much I will 100% go back, winter or summer. 
After a fun night out in The Village (a center full of restaurants, shops and bars), we spent the entire next day hiking to 2 of Mammoths well known spots: Devil's Postpile National Monument and Rainbow Falls. When I say that it took all day I mean it took 6 hours, so make sure you allow enough time if you plan to visit both spots. You start at the Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort and pay $7.00 per person for a bus ride and entrance into the park. The bus ride is about 30 minutes long and drives through very windy, narrow roads. They cram as many people as they can onto those buses - consider that a warning. Exit stop #6 for Devil's Postpile and it is not too long of a trip to the actual Postpile (less than 2 miles). You can then head to Rainbow Falls from the Postpile but it is about 4 miles. You can even rent horses and horseback ride the trail.
If you can only make one if these sights I recommend Rainbow Falls. It is the most amazing waterfall I have ever seen and you can swim in it!!!! If only I would have know I would have brought my bikini, my floatie and some lunch. Take my advice and plan to chill at the base of the waterfall for a while. The water is freezing, but worth the experience. 
We finished our night with an amazing sunset and a crazy firework show to celebrate the USA!
