Xbone's Desert Life
Wow, what a enjoyable experience my family and I had a blast at Xbones Desert Life camp. It is nature at its finest. Effie and Seths hospitality is unmatched and pleasant, they treated us with respect and have great sense of humor, they are so cool. They have a beautiful campfire that we roasted marshmallows while stargazing and got to see alot of meteors and I think I spotted 2 UFO's which was crazy, nature walked around especially that the camp is next to a rocky hill where we hiked up and got to see alot of gnarly friendly lizards, took my dirt bike and went off-roading and the terrain was perfect for that felt like I was in desert heaven. The desert panorama was breathtaking. We slept in a tent to get the ultimate desert camping experience and was not disappointed. I will be back soon to take some of my nature loving friends. Thank you Effie and Seth, you guys rock.

Sandstone Sanctuary
Life Time Experience
For the Sandstone Sanctuaty Grand Opening, we had 6 groups of people came over for one night. Not only the space is huge but it's also so beautiful with rocks formations as a backdrop. The place was far enough for a RV, a trailer and 6 tents at the same time. The place also had a kitchen, a bar(can be used as shelter), 3 picnic tables and a Gazebo. The hoster Effie and his boyfriend are still perferting this project. They are adding a toilet, an A frame cabin and more. The location is not bad, it's very close to a hot spring, and a lot off road activities you can do. The Cafe in the town offers delicious BBQ, you must give it a try. I highly recommend you check this place out as a perfect desert getaway experience.
