Coachella Valley


Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I just happened to come across these pictures, and they are to beautiful not to share. This valley is also the desert, but what they call the lower desert in California. It is about 3 hrs. south of us. A little info about the area if you are interested.

Beautiful pics.

I should add. The picture they have with the snow on the mountain, is the same mountain I always take pictures of. They took the picture from the other side.

    Wow! Thank you for sharing! A lot of the photos aren't my cup of tea, but others I love. My two favorites are the mallard and looking upwards into the palm trees. This wouldmake a fantastic program for someoneto present at a club meeting!
