I worked there one summer many years ago.

Initially, I hated it. Dry, hot, desert. My boss said "this place kinda grows on you" and a few weeks later, he was right.

It's really hot. Like... put a burrito on your dashboard, and 20 minutes later, it's too hot to eat. It cools down a bit at night, being a desert.

But it's pretty in places, and they have road runners and cacti. And lots of US Marines.

Not far from Joshua Tree NP, too.
