Timing is everything. I am signed up for an art walk in May, but this will have to do.
I March, we too a short drive up to see some of the wildflowers blooming. This is just a few miles above Palm Desert on Highway 74 (goes to San Diego if you keep going).
We took a short WALK, (not a hike). It seemed as if the rocks themselves were blooming!
Other desert plants were also beautiful close up.
Our longest walks take place in Italy, or have shopping involved!
