I am in the desert with Joyce Rooks at her house in Desert Hot Springs, CA near Palm Springs. Joyce is an amazing lamp work artist and musician. It is a lovely retreat for both of us. So quiet and peaceful. Birds singing and the wind and a little rain are the only sounds we hear. We hiked in the desert across from the house yesterday.
The is the view out Joyce's front door.
Looking out the back door, you can see San Jacinto Mountain and the Wind Farm below. Very
cool!!! The desert is in bloom and I took some great pictures.
We saw this burrowing owl at the beginning of our hike.
