I was born and raised in Paramount, in the heart of LA. My husband, Abel, and I moved to the Joshua Tree area full-time in 1982. Prior to that, I had been visiting since the early 1960s.

My grandfather, a former LA police officer, came here in the 30s. When he moved up here, there was only a dirt road from Banning on -- probably going for 30 miles. He was a well-known character who made his own beer during prohibition and ran the cabins now known as Willie Boy's Restaurant in Morongo Valley. We'd visit my grandparents on the weekends and in the summer.

I was drawn to the Yucca Valley area around La Contenta Road for the exquisite scenic beauty and have been in this neighborhood since moving to the area.
