cheers to the weekend: joshua tree / sfgirlbybay

chicago-based photographer anna zajac is back with her series cheers to the weekend. i’m so excited about this week’s post, because she’s been to california’s much-beloved joshua tree, an outpost for artists and musicians and someplace high on my wish to visit list, and she’s taking us along for the ride. anna spent her time in joshua tree in an airstream owned by an artist named Shari and she booked the place through Airbnb. talk about the ideal way to visit the desert — it’s just the perfect kitschy fit — a cozy, quiet glamping getaway just 20 minutes from Joshua Tree village and 30 minutes from Palm Springs.

you can enjoy a glamping adventure in this 1974 International 30′ Airstream Trailer shari found in need of a lot of TLC. It’s been a work in progress + labor of love and now her trailer decorated in vintage-inspired treasures hosts many happy traveling airbnb’rs. the airstream boasts views of the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains — the two tallest mountains in Southern California, starry nights, on quiet dirt road 1/2 mile off 62 highway. both her airstream trailer and a main cabin are available on airbnb. The cabin, a Sears kit home from 1960, went solar with Sungevity and has been making electricity from the ample sunlight in Morongo Valley since 2013. There is also a firepit, for warm evenings under the stars. i am so in! thank you so much for sharing your adventure with us anna! for more wonderful weekend adventures with anna, visit her website.

  1. joshua tree is at the top of my list of places to visit. an airstream would be the perfect lodging!

    Awesome pictures! I literally just visited Joshua Tree for the first time last week and it was pretty neat. Watching rock climbers was probably my favorite part. But wow, that airstream is decorated so unbelievably cute! I’m obsessed.

    Love it, especially the set up around the fire outside! Such a cool place to stay. I’m with you on Joshua Tree being on my wish list, but I’m a little farther away than you;-)

    Anna was the sweetest guest ever! These pictures are amazing, thanks for sharing! I’ve only had the airstream open for guests since november and it’s been an amazing experience. Thank you for the sweet comments, Julian and Anna and friends!
