Southern California’s towering San Jacinto Mountains form an impressive backdrop to the valley floor in Palm Springs. The palm canyons of the Santa Rosa foothills where you will hike, provide shelter for herds of bighorn sheep. Highlight days include a ride through Joshua Tree National Park and its unworldly boulder formations, learning about the Indian Canyons from a native Cahuilla Indian Park Ranger, and several hikes –including one through an unusual palm canyon where bighorn sheep are frequently sighted.
Though Palm Springs had its heyday during the mid-twentieth century when it was one of the most fashionable getaways for movie stars and celebrities, the recent decade has seen it have a dramatic resurgence in popularity. The area’s Mid-Century Modern homes are fetching top dollar and downtown Palm Springs features a number of excellent restaurants, hotels, and a growing arts scene.
