Pioneertown - The Donnas
We don't need much of an excuse to go to Pioneertown. The Donnas were playing, and the weather was gorgeous. And as a bonus, The Donnas were super super nice (they stayed in the hotel rooms next door).
Pioneertown, located a few miles outside Yucca Valley near Joshua Tree National Park, was originally built as a movie set for Western movies. The movie set was to provide a place for the actors to live, and have their homes used as part of a movie set.
