“This region of the Mojave desert is quite different from the other regions that we have visited on our traveling. The high desert in Mojave Preserve, is so untouched, so natural in its wilderness, just vast spaces of unpolluted land, dressed in its original wilderness form; is truly breathtaking in its natural beauty.’ One of the many complimentary comments, which I often hear at the Harmony Motel from our guests about the high desert.
“We love the Joshua Tree National Park,” said another guest as he was checking out”.
I can truly understand and share people’s joy and fascination of the high desert, having lived here for 6 years myself. The high desert has a natural seductive beauty that grows on you rather speedily. She can wear her best weather for you, cool, calm and temperate, or allow you to enjoy her beautiful blooms, or just ignore you by isolating herself in her stark wilderness.
The high desert certainly enthralls you with her dramatic rock formation (in the Joshua Tree National Park). It is though each unique formation has her own history waiting to anxiously reveal her story to you, given the opportunity to speak.
According to many geologists these rock formations erupted from the desert floor, more than 100 million years ago, giving us a unique sight-seeing adventure.
Often the desert invites the outdoor traveler to rock climb her magnificent formations high up in the Desert Mountains. This gives the energetic rock climber a great amount of joy to be able to experience the desert’s magnificent beauty from high elevations, with breathtaking views of natural landscapes.
Harmony Motel compliments the high desert in its location and setting, in the beautiful rural city called TwentyNine Palms. The motel is located 3 miles away from the largest visitors information center on the East side of the Joshua Tree National Park. Twentynine Palms a gateway to the Park.
Check out the Harmony Motel the next time you are in the high desert. Experience the unique display of the desert’s rock formation, one of the many beautiful features that she loves to share with you. Enjoy your time rock climbing or hiking the beautiful natural landscapes in the Joshua Tree National Park. The National Park will certainly provide you with a unique wilderness experience.
