A Gem in the Desert, Cactus Joe’s

Recently we took a little drive out towards Red Rock for a visit to Cactus Joe’s.

Of course we also took the opportunity for a hike, but this was such a fun stop along the drive!

Located along Blue Diamond Road headed towards Red Rock, look out for the colored flags and the truck advertising the business.

Be on the lookout for the truck & signs!

Cactus Joe’s has ample parking, and is a great place to check out rocks, plants, lawn art, and outdoor goodies.

Especially during the winter, this place can lift the spirits! I especially love the green house areas.

In addition to the indoor green house area, Cactus Joe’s has a huge outdoor area!

There is also a labyrinth here! Y’all know I love a good labyrinth, so it was a delightful surprise to find one at CJ’.s

Labyrinth for your enjoyment!

They also have an indoor store area which features locally made jewelry, windchimes, books on local plants/wildlife/history, semiprecious stones and incense.

And they have a furry friend in the store!

They also have a few enclosed area with specialty rocks from the southwest–each bin tells you about where in the southwest the rock specimens are from!

So much amethyst! Tears of joy!

If you are looking for a fun stop on the way to or from Red Rock, Spring Mountain Ranch or Bonnie Springs-Cactus Joe’s is absolute perfection.

Thanks for reading, and happy sobering friends!
