Gregg is a school teacher, so we take vacations when school is out.
Sometime between Christmas and Spring Break they have the mid-winter break.
In 2005 this was during the last week of February.
Back in September we
were visited by my old friend Barry, who moved to Palm Springs in 2001.
Gregg had never been to Palm Springs, so it seemed like this time away from
school was a perfect time to see Barry and get into the desert for a few
days of sun.
The weather on the
west coast has been crazy this year. Palm Springs was getting more
rain than Seattle. But I have a never been one to complain too much
about the weather, so we flew south not really caring what the weather would
bring. We had sunny and warm weather all the time we were there.
We had a good time
visiting friends, lounging around the resort, and enjoying some of the night
life, but we didn't have get any pictures of that. However, we did
get some nice pictures of three different excursions we took away from the
city. Here they are:
