The plant above is a cholla and there were much smaller ones here and there, but in this place called the Cholla Gardens, they were abundant and the light was just right coming thru them, it was truly beautiful.
And the light!!! It was the perfect day to be there, with the clouds to give pictures some interest and the light shinning through the clouds and the cloud shadows on the hills.
Coming back into the valley where Desert Hot Springs is there was rain in the mountains and you could see the different layers of light on the different mountains and rain coming down over there. When we woke this morning there was snow on them thar hills! Everything was bright and new. It was a wonderful day for a drive.
When i got down to lower elevation there was even a couple of wildflowers blooming!
Take Care and God Bless
