Search Party: Palm Desert

grass

Typically I like to head West. Its towards the ocean and my favorite beaches. But having just completed a heavy semester of classes, I needed to switch it up and get my brain retuned for 2014.

benchIn terms of finding solace and peace, the desert is your answer. Vast expanses of featureless land do wonders to clear a mind. After spinning a globe around as fast as I could (with my eyes closed), I stopped it with my finger, right on Rancho Mirage, a small resort town in the Coachella Valley/Palm Springs area.

I should mention this is also where the world famous Betty Ford Center is located.  Fortunately our arrangements were at a different location.

I shot up the 15 interstate and then headed East on the 10. I wasn’t on the 10 for long when I spotted something on the horizon. Not a hippo, but dinosaurs. The extinct kind, life size, or what I would have imagined life-size!  I pulled over and started exploring. The sun had set so I prepared my tripod for a picture of these beasts, frozen in time. Unfortunately after I had taken my pictures, I turned my back for a second and one of the dinosaurs ate my camera. My Olympus D370 had a good life, but it was time to upgrade from 1.3 megapixels.

After the unfortunate incident, I continued eastward further into the desert and straight into the path of thousands of……windmills.  A little history on these, It turns out every single one can produce up to 300 kilowatts in a day – enough to power your house for 3 months. If you’ve seen these things being transported on flatbeds, than you have an idea of just how big one blade can be!

Deeper into the dark desert I continued before finally reaching my accommodations at Agua Caliente. I won’t go too much into the relaxation part as I’m aware school and such has started for myself as well as most anybody reading this!

Thanks for the recharge dry, waterless, windy desert, I’ll see you again soon!
