Palm Springs: Full Circle

Well, John and I are now waiting in the airport for our return flight home. Yesterday was much more mellow than the previous few, packing less in. After a leisurely morning we went for hike in Andreas Canyon, a natural palm grove and oasis owned and maintained by the Agua Caliente Band of the Cahuilla Indians. Having grown up in a land-locked state this was a real treat. It was a refreshing hike along a trail enveloped in palms and canyon walls. The trail we took was just about a mile in length, but there are many others in the area operated by the Indians, each of varying length and difficulty. Another great outdoor opportunity in the area is Joshua Tree National Park.

In the afternoon we lazed in our resort’s pool area for the first time for any significant length of time. It was a great afternoon for it and gave us an opportunity to visit with other guests.

That’s it on the trip for now. However, over the next few days I plan to reflect a little more on the trip with new posts and to update this and the previous posts that I’ve been writing on the fly. It has been a fun experiment live blogging this vacation, I hope it informs others about the pleasures of Palm Springs.
