After coming back from Japan, I made a quick escape to the desert with Rick. We spent a few days in Palm Springs, California with friends Linda and Steve. I had no idea how much I would appreciate this escape when we planned this trip months ago. Linda and Steve jokingly call their desert home the “fat farm” probably because we ate low-fat healthy meals. To further go with the theme, we went on three great calorie-burning hikes in the desert. I love the “fat-farm”!
We walked through nature preserves, desert springs and oases where thick palms groves thrive, sculpted gardens and sculpture gardens, and national parks and trails. Mockingbirds, rabbits, lizards, a coyote, cactus wrens, butterflies, dragonflies, and many other creatures treated us to viewing them.
How lucky to have spent a few days in the desert sun and air! How lucky to have spent time, away from the onslaught of media, with like-minded friends whose values are a true inspiration!
Enjoy the slideshow from Palm Springs and the surrounding trails and places of nature.
