Living right smack in the middle of a desert just amazes me. We live in this little oasis surrounded by mountains, sand, tumbleweeds and windmills. It is so different from North Carolina where I grew up. I was sorting through some pictures that I took when I first moved to Palm Desert in 2006 and found these photos:
Our old house in Indian Wells with the mountains behind it.
It doesn’t look like a desert…everything is so lush!
I remember taking this picture because the mountain almost didn’t look real.
It looked like it was just plopped there.
The giraffes at the Living Desert, a mile from my house.

This 8500 feet above the desert floor and is so nice and cool in the summer.
