The Living Desert, Palm Desert, CA

The Living Desert in Palm Desert, CA, is 1200 acres dedicated to…”desert conservation through preservation, education and appreciation”.

I highly recommend visiting when in the area as it is very well organized featuring hard surface trails with sand side trails containing scenarios of various desert life. It is easy walking and a shuttle runs constantly if walking is not suitable.

What these pictures cannot convey is the heat–in the sun–the cool–in the shade–the bird songs, And the fragrance of the desert.
