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

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

Palm Springs Home at Dusk

One of countless charming, mid-century modern homes in Palm Springs. I took this photo on my recent visit, while driving through residential neighborhoods, admiring the architecture, dreaming. ~SueBee

Hiking Andreas Canyon, Part 2 of 2

Continuing from yesterday’s post at the halfway point, I crossed the footbridge over the creek and started on the path uphill for the return portion of the hike. As I reached the crest, I found the view, past rocky outcroppings, over canyons, and on to mountains miles in the distance, to be spectacular. I was now nearly […]

Hiking Andreas Canyon, Part 1 of 2

My recent visit to Palm Springs was spent outdoors, hiking various trails, enjoying the glorious desert winter weather. Exploring solo, I’m always careful to stay where other people are, just not too close. I’d inquired at my hotel about best hiking trails and was directed to the Indian Canyons on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation at the […]

Desert Black and Whites

I just returned from a few days R&R (rest and relaxation) in Palm Springs, a favorite get-away place not far from home. Most of my time was spent outdoors, hiking, and thoroughly enjoying not being at work. The weather was crisp (downright cold starting late afternoons), the sky either crystal clear or with the occasional photographic cloud formations. While I sort my 850+ photos, I’ve […]

Palm Springs by Foot and Car

My visit to Palm Springs last weekend was, as I mentioned, for charity events. A group of us, including my son and Kat, walked early Saturday morning under clear, sunny skies, raising money to fight AIDS. The Desert AIDS Walk was very successful, raising over $300,000! The 90 degree heat didn’t seem so bad, considering we […]

Palm Springs Riviera By Day

Yesterday’s article captured the magic of the Palm Springs Riviera at night, but I also managed to catch a few shots during daylight hours. Most were taken while waiting for my carpool ride (aka, my son) to pick me up on Sunday. The giant television screen over the lobby bar captured my camera’s attention with its revolving array of vintage, artsy […]

Palm Springs Riviera By Night

I drove out to Palm Springs Friday after work, carpooling with my son, for a Saturday packed with charity events. He dropped me off at the Riviera, where I’d been lucky to get a reservation two months ago. My son was staying with friends who own a weekend home there. Hotel rooms are in demand as the desert’s autumn/winter high season […]

“Orange Table”

I love art museums, especially when they highlight contemporary art. This colorful pic of an orange table in front of a painting was taken at the Palm Springs Art Museum. What a fun place…spent hours there! Can’t wait to re-visit! 🙂 ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Rainbow Palms

During a trip to Palm Springs, I came across a vintage hotel, surrounded by palms, with rainbow colors painted on the building. I absolutely love the style of vintage architecture, tons of color, and unique designs, so I just had to snap a pic of this quirky building! ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Until recently, I’ve seen snow twice in my life:  While living in Germany for a couple years when I was too young to remember anything, it apparently snowed on my birthday one year! When I was like 4, while dropping my brother off for a school trip in the mountains somewhere. Spending the vast majority […]

PS, I Love Your Art!

As I mentioned in my previous post, Kat and I visited the Palm Springs Art Museum during a recent trip to PS. It was a fabulous find, a really gorgeous art museum. Below is just a sampling of photos taken there.

PS, I Love You!

Palm Springs is fabulous in the summer, and honestly, I can’t wait to go back again… in the fall, winter, spring! It was just a tad HOT when Kat and I took a one night getaway to PS recently. We heard the temp reached 117 during our visit. I’m guessing, though, once you get past 100, […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
