Jayne and I visited Palm Springs , California, recently. What follows are brief impressions of the desert-like experience.
The first hike we did was exploring the Palm Canyon at the Indian Canyons preserve. As was typical of our desert experience, the rocky hills and mountains would give way to an incredible oasis of palm trees and California Fan Palms .
Another hike we made was in Borrego Springs at Anza-Borrego State Park . When we entered this area we truly felt we landed on Mars, The starkness and barreness of the landscape was not like anything we had experienced before.
This park also had its version of Palm Canyon where the palm trees looked like giant carrots!
We also took the tram to the top of the second highest peak in southern California and the Mt. San Jacinto State Park .
The views were breathtaking as we rode up and down in a rotating tram with open windows!
These were the grounds on which we stayed.
And this was the sunrise of our last morning.
Thanks, Gary! It will be a fun visit for you.
Hi Jerry! Great photos! We are planning on going to Palm Springs in March.
Great stuff Jerry.
Thanks, Judy! Traveling is fun!
Your photos are just amazing, Jerry! Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to see places I’ll probably never visit. San Jose, CA is my top destination right now!
