O.K......just checking in....we are staying in Palm Springs for a few days. Visiting friends from the San Juan Islands, Montana, and California. It is quite nice that all of them are here at the same time so we can catch up.
For those of you who have not been in this part of our beautiful country....just sharing a few shots around the area.
The flowers here are magnificent this time of year....and of course it is Golf Course Mecca!!
It is about the same weather wise as AZ...only it can be a little hotter in the summer.
Each time we come here...I am always amazed by all this green right in the middle of a desert.
And...of course.....there are water features EVERYWHERE. I've been told that Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Cathedral City, Indio....etc.. are sitting over a huge lake ...... so apparently...water will never be a problem.
Here is a shot of the surrounding area in the desert. There are huge patches of desert between all the golf course communities and little cities. The huge mountain in the background is covered with snow most of the year. You can ride a tram to the top of the mountain, which we have done. It is a nice experience.
Just a few more shots around the area....
Long boulevards...lined with palm trees.
We are staying right on the 17th hole on a golf course community.....geese right outside our window.
Huge Lizard sculptures along the boulevard. We have LOTS of lizards in this part of the country. LOL
Pics inside a really KITCHIE OLD HOTEL in downtown Palm Springs called THE PARKER.
And last....but not least....pics of the OLD HOMESTEAD..... (O:
O.K.....not quite...but the flowers are mine!!
Palm Springs has a little bit of everything for everyone...not matter what your fancy.
Hopefully you have enjoyed the little tour of the Palm springs area....it is truly an Oasis in the Desert.
Will catch up with all when we return.
