It’s so nice when the weather cooperates. My planned trip to take a hike out in Desert Hot Springs was all the better for the cool wind blowing from the west off the ocean. I’d been out here a couple of times before, but a handful of new caches and the lovely desert scenery enticed me back.
Here’s a link to more on the Mission Creek Preserve.
The caches were a nice variety of containers, most regular size for easy finds, and a few typically crazy creative ones by the Wheeler Dealers. I ended up with a 4 mile round trip on my trip odometer, mostly on a gently uphill graded dirt road, and with an annoyingly large number of foxtail stickers in my shoes and socks. ‘Tis the season…
As you can see, it’s the perfect time to head out in to the desert. Not only is it still cool, the flowers are at their peak.
