Okay… I’ll fess up the full story: we’re on the waiting list for a site here at the Jojoba Hills SKP Park, a stunning spot between San Diego and Palm Springs.
The staff and residents were wonderfully welcoming and the park itself gave us everything we look for: great hills for huffing on foot or puffing on our bikes, bird watching, sunset staring, and all those amenities that help us stay in shape.
Not only that, the neighboring property, though privately owned, is open for wandering. And wander we did!
Everywhere we looked, there was something new to see. We hiked for miles, up and down hills like these…
…and when we lost our footing, we tried not to fall into the cactus…
… or disturb the natives.
