Snow capped San Grogornio Mountain to the west of our location, at 11,503 feet it is the highest peak in Southern California.
Everyone has heard about Palm Springs. They have endless golf courses, gated communities and very expensive shopping. We however have been at an RV Park in North Palms Springs! This isn’t even a town! It is an unincorporated area that has a a post office and a very small one at that. The RV Park is surrounded by empty desert.

As you can probably guess this is a pretty quiet and very relaxing area. Due east of here is the town of Desert Hot Springs. It is just big enough to have gas stations, grocery stores and places to eat. When I last posted I wrote “so far it has been mostly windy.” Our first day here was very windy (we are just east of a Windmill Farm). We had a 12 hour wind storm that was 20 mph with gust to 50 mph. However since that day the weather here has been SPECTACULAR! While most of the country has had record breaking cold, we have enjoyed lows in the 50s and highs in the mid-70. Now, this was the desert weather we came for!

We spent most of our time at North Palms Springs getting back into RV mode after our hectic time in San Jose and of course, getting ready for the Montana Owner Circle at Quartzsite Arizona.
