My favorite spot
to visit this past weekend was
one of the most photographed
places in Palm Springs this season.
It's the ranch-style house of
located on Racquet Club Road in Palm Springs.
Artist Doug Aitken covered every
surface of this mid-century style home in mirror.
It reflects the surrounding desert landscape
in the most beautiful ways,
and each time of day is different.
Each time you visit will be a new experience.
It’s the ultimate mirage in the desert!
April is also the perfect month to visit
the “Living Desert”.
It’s another fabulous family-friendly
excursion in Palm Desert,
filled with gorgeous native and exotic animals
The grounds are an interesting tapestry of
authentic cacti and other desert plants.
A truly beautiful place!
Among some of my favorite animals there were the
mountain lions, fennec foxes and giraffes.
And where else in the US can you get to ride a camel?
Giraffe feeding is
also a popular activity at the Living Desert.
It’s so fun to get up close and personal
with these huge and amazing creatures!
But I think our favorite activity there was
visiting the butterfly exhibit.
I’ve never seen such beautiful butterflies anywhere else.
Here’s a fun little guy I captured on my smart phone…
