Shots from the last week, around the Coachella Valley.

From an overlook on the Palms-to-Pines Highway, looking across the width of the Valley:

Little San Bernadino Mountains and Indio Hills
DA* 60-250 @ 250

Approaching Painted Canyon in the Mecca Hills:

Palo Verde
DA 16-45 @ 16

From a walk up East Deception Canyon:

DA 16-45 @ 16

This reminded me of "A Grand Day Out", but I didn't have any change to put in it
DA 16-45 @ 16

DA 16-45 @ 18

More views of the Little San Bernardino Mountains:

DA* 60-250 @ 80

DA* 60-250 @ 200

Nice views of desolation :-) I'll point out the Coachella Valley is a huge agricultural area.

Re agricultural: indeed, the miles of fields around the Salton Sea are most impressive.

Bob: I can see how you and Terri spend the winter here -- great weather and so much to do and see.
