Palm Springs Pleasure!

I visited Palm Springs two weekends ago and had such a wonderful time. My favorite part were the … kind of awning spritzers … does that make sense?

Actually … the really best part was going to the Salton Sea.

The present-day Salton Sea? Historic evidence and geologic studies have shown that the Colorado River spilled over into the Salton Basin a number of times. That’s what has created this huge lake.

The other Dead Sea – the famous one – was created by a unique landscape created (together with the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River) by the great Syrian-African geological depression which occurred nearly 1 ½ million years ago.

My boyfriend and I arrived to find no one there. It was the strangest thing. There was one car in the parking lot – other than ours.

It was a gentleman from Sacramento State University – who is taking a degree in Parks and Recreation Administration. His name was Justin Bell – he was adorable. I think he was so thankful to see a human being to interview that he nearly attacked us!
