We're back after a really nice (but too short) vacation in Palm Desert. This picture is specially for Knatolee:
Palm Springs aerial tramway, about 8500 feet up Mt. San Jacinto. It was in the 50's up there. And the tramway is a great trip, although perhaps not for those who aren't fond of heights.
Shields Date Garden in Indio, and the Things got to try a date shake:
We visited the Living Desert, too, and the Things got to pretend to be birds:
The drive to Palm Desert and back was long (over 400 miles each way), but the desert is really pretty this time of year. Here's a crappy picture I took from the car outside Palm Springs:
And here's another crappy car shot from the Mojave Desert:
Oh, and on the way to Palm Desert we stopped at a Mini dealership (there are none by our house) and I test drove one. What fun little cars! I want one! Well, I really want a Smart, but they're 2 seaters, so I'll settle for a Mini.
