Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Weekend outing~~Joshua Tree National Park~~That's my World
















Sunday was overcast and a gray day, but hubby and I had talked about driving out to Joshua Tree National Park for the afternoon, so we did. The joshua trees are so unusual~it truly is another world up there! When we got to the highest point, at over 5,000 feet, the dry wind was blowing and it chilled us to our bones! But, the view of our valley was beautiful! We could see Mt. San Jacinto, as well as the Salton Sea. And, we could also see where the San Andreas fault runs east to west through our valley.

That's what one looks like I had no idea. This really is such an arid world to mine.

It is so weird to actually "SEE" the fault line but you can. Great pictures of the Park!
