The area has been deeply saddened and impacted by the loss of the "My Deseret Rose" Restraurant due to a recent fire. The spot was visited by locals and out of town off-roaders who could ride up to the doors for a hot meal or cold drink nomatter if they were inbetween their fun or at the end of their day.
Those who have spent weekends and holidays riding in the area know what a convience it was to not have to pack everything needed for meals, to have a clean, sand free area to eat and to have someone else prepare food when you have been riding all day.
The family owned business would like to rebuild if possible. Those who have visited the area wishing to help the owners get back on their feet and try to recover from this disaster can contribute by sending a check donations to: My Deseret Rose, P.O. Box 1531 Borrego Springs, CA 92004
