Plan Your Trip


We are located in the high desert at 4,500-feet altitude. Typical desert weather is warm or hot during the day, with dropping temperatures at night. We have dry air and strong winds that can help with the warm temperatures, but which also circulate dust and pollen in the air.

What to Bring

We highly recommend comfortable, relaxed clothing for easy movement. Layering, even in the summer months, is recommended to adjust to the changing temperatures throughout the day and night. In addition, we recommend you pack:


Toothbrush / Toothpaste

Hair dryer

Lotion / Sunscreen

Walking Shoes

Water bottle

*Pool under renovation until Summer 2024.
