Where I stayed
7 Springs Inn & Suites
Picked-up a hire-care in LA and hit the freeways with our trusty TomTom. With a few minor deviations via some mundane LA suburb we were on-route and heading to Palm Springs. I knew it was going to be hot - but 109F?- I hadn't planned on that! With a suitcase full of bushing walking gear (thermals, hiking boots and jeans) - it was time to find a mall.
Instead we collapsed into the pool. Well Glenn thought it was a spa the water was so hot - and it certainly was not 50m nor not large enough to be able to do laps - but it sufficed to cool off.
A late afternoon stroll down the main shopping strip of Palm Springs (and still over 100F) - the shops were still open and I managed to get Glenn into a body pampering shop where the shop assistant had us massaging our hands with some sort of organic goo. Glenn has a new sport in the US - baiting the shop assistant - they don't know how to take him! This could be quite amusing - for me as the observer.
Off to Williams today - a long drive - and more desert.
