New Year's in Palm Desert...ahhh.. Visons of warmth come to mind until I recall my avalanche survival training...You can FREEZE TO DEATH in the desert. And, ah, yup, this New Year's was no exception..

For us "warm weather folk" 55 F is Freezing. BUT, it was a wonderful time just to have almost 3 days off from work (ok, well, we did work most of the first day).

And yes folks, that "stuff" on the mountains above the "sunny" pool illusion is real, honest to goodness snow (notice the abundance of people in and around the pool area)...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:If you play golf, you'll never finish the courses
  • Cons:Hmmm, if you don't play golf....there's always shopping.
  • In a nutshell:I'll have to go back to see more.

    Looks nice with the surrounding snow capped Mountains.

      Thanks for visiting; it gave me a chance to fix yet another typo on my pages.

    Wonderful presentation of Palm Desert. We have great memories of that area. We stayed nearby for 3 months one winter. [and we are golfers so we certainly enjoyed the courses there].
