we took a little trip to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree this past week. highlights: breakfast every morning on the veranda at Korakia Pensione, swimming, Moorten's Botanical Garden, the Aerial Tramway in Palm Springs up to Mount San Jacinto where we could see the Salton Sea and even Mexico (i think), hiking in Joshua Tree, roaring fires in our fireplace at Twenty-nine Palms Inn, browsing for mid-century modern furniture
