Last weekend I decided to change the pace of things for a bit and have a little getaway in Indio. Not alone however because my irrational anxiety handicaps me from being by myself at most times…it’s not pretty. I went with a group of close friends yet I drove out alone. I’m really glad I did because I was able to make a couple of pit stops on the way to the desert and back. Stopped by the outlets (duh), the infamous Cabazon dinosaurs and hung out with the windmills for a bit too. Did you know there is forest life atop the Palm Springs mountain range? Me neither until we trekked the top for a little hike on Saturday; the journey getting up there was not for the faint of heart.
