The Grand Trip - The Land Of The Palms
It's time to return to the adventures of The Grand Trip. There are so many more things to share with you - we've only just begun. If you need to catch up with where we were when we were diverted for a bit you can read about our adventures here and here.
We left the RV park where we had spent the night and we traveled on toward the south. We weren't very far from our destination so it wasn't a long drive to the next place where we planned to spend the next two nights. We had been told that there was a very beautiful way to get to the freeway where we would turn east through southern California. We followed the route but wondered if what we were told was right - this didn't seem beautiful at all!
We drove down the mountain highway and soon we were on the freeway! Just a short time ago we were on roads where we saw no one else. Now we were in a traffic jam!
If you've been following my blog for awhile you know I love mountains! Palm Desert and Palm Springs are right up against beautiful mountains. They are very different than the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, but they are gorgeous and they tower above the buildings. The cities are built right up next to some of the mountains. Some homes have them in their backyards. . .
