October 2015 - Palm Springs CA
I posted photos from the zoo section of The Living Desert.
They also have a section devoted to miniature trains.
Model trains first came to The Living Desert in 1998, initially as part of the annual WildLights holiday program, but quickly expanded due to the popularity of the exhibit. Now, the exhibit is almost an acre large, consists of more than 3,300 feet of track, six different loops and a host of surprising characters.
Camping in the desert.
Isn't this fantastic!!
So cool to see places you've visited. I'm not sure what mission is in the background, there are so many in California.
The Wig Wam Motel is about an hour's drive from Palm Springs along Route 66. There is so much to do in the area around Palm Springs but so many people just don't explore.
Click here to see the "real" Wig Wam Motel in Rialto CA. We drove there in 2008, the last time we were in Palm Springs.
My husband mentioned that there should have been cars parked in from of the motel rooms.
If you zoom on this photo you will spot (bottom right) the Rancho Car Wash sign featuring the iconic pink elephant seen on Highway 111.
