Visiting the World’s First Cactarium

An after-lunchtime visit to Moorten Botanical Garden was a nice break between hikes during my recent Palm Springs visit. Established in 1938, it’s a desert lover’s cactus feast. I found their World’s First Cactarium, pictured in this gallery, to be most fascinating, and I’m pleased to know I visited a world’s first! ~SueBee

Room to Express Myself

As I mentioned in an update to our “About Us” page, Kat moved into her own apartment with her boyfriend, Cam, just a little while back. She’d been gone during her four years of college, and most […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

People express themselves by wearing pins, waving flags, displaying car bumper stickers and banners, chanting slogans. I gathered my things together for this photo challenge, and was surprised at how much stuff I have! More photos of this week’s challenge are here. ~SueBee

Near Carthay Square, 1

If you want to check out city sights, avoid the usual throng of cars, I suggest you get out early on a Sunday morning. I spent the weekend visiting my son on the west side of Los Angeles; he lives in the Carthay Square area, near Fairfax and Olympic. I wanted to get a photo of […]

Hiking the Lykken Trail (11)

Hiking the Lykken Trail

Another trail I hiked during my recent Palm Springs visit (I crammed a lot into a two night get-away!) was the North Lykken Trail. It’s not on Indian Reservation land so no entry fee required. I didn’t go up the side of the mountain too terribly far, but the view from as far as I got was spectacular! […]

Route 66 Exhibit (10)

Route 66 Exhibit

New Year’s Day I skipped the Rose Parade and the football game to visit the Gene Autry Museum of the American West in Griffith Park. Entry was free that particular day, but that wasn’t my motivation. Rather, I wanted to catch the Route 66 Exhibit before it moved on just a few days later. I remember driving […]

Tahquitz Canyon Texter

Hiking up Tahquitz Canyon in Palm Springs, surrounded by cliffs, trail climbing at a pretty stiff pace, water gurgling in the stream down below, brisk, fresh air, and then I see the red hat on this gal sitting on the large boulder (photo opp!)…. it’s not until I view on the computer that I notice she’s texting. Perhaps she’s sharing the beauty of this […]

Around Town in Palm Springs

You may be able to tell I’m having a love affair with Palm Springs! It’s a vibrant, gorgeous town filled with wonderful people. One afternoon during my recent visit, I decided to cruise a few residential areas, view the low-slung homes, palm tree lined streets, soak in the desert atmosphere. Here’s a sampling in this gallery. Are you ready for a […]

Snow Up Top, Palms Down Below

Snow Up Top, Palms Down Below

Another beautiful scene from Palm Springs, just west of downtown! A day or two after I left, a really cold storm blew into Southern California and put a lot more snow on the mountains. While I missed that photo opportunity, I’m glad my hikes weren’t interrupted with freezing weather! ~SueBee
