Ace was the place for the Perseids meteor shower
Desert road trip with an old pal. The Perseids meteor shower was truly amazing! The biggest, brightest fireballs shooting across the sky that I have ever seen in my life. We drove up into the mountains in the wee hours of the morning for better views away from lights and were joined by the likes of at least one coyote and several other creatures who preferred just to freak us out in the brush without showing themselves ;) The Ace hotel was ace! 110 in the desert sun forces you to relax. Like being in a sauna for hours, and then floating in a saline pool. Pure delight!
