We were up early today. Nice hotel in Palm Springs and they allow the dogs who are thrilled. We have well behaved dogs, have to take puppy out at around 2:00 am every night but it was fairly easy.
We had planned a big hike today to the top of the tram in Palm Springs. Up early at around 6 am as it gets hot here, packed and ready and when we got to the trail head no dogs allowed. We aren't letting it ruin our day, we did 5 miles around the bottom of the mountain and then we are looking into dog friendly hikes for tomorrow. We saw some beautiful mid century homes that are fantastically well maintained. Makes me want to go home and rake and prune and power wash.
It is nice to feel so relaxed. Today we are going to the store to get some water and juices and we are eating at a nice restaurant tonight. It was really hard yesterday finding a place to eat, even fast food as the area was pretty deserted.
We stopped in Lone Pine and The Western Film Museum and it was very interesting. They filmed hundreds of films in that area, many westerns and today even film a lot of car commercials there. They did part of Iron Man in that area as well.
Have a great Monday. Im off to explore Palm Springs.
