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.

Killer Highway lives up to its name

I'm very sad to report that, once again, the "killer highway" has claimed another life. Apparently a car full of young people (4) came down the hill Sunday evening and it went over the side of the mountain. All were wearing their seat belts, but a passenger was killed. Two more are in serious condition in a local hospital. One has a brain injury and a broken back. Apparently alcohol was NOT involved. But, as I have noticed MANY TIMES, speed does. PLEASE, when a sign says "30 mph", it MEANS 30 mph. And, when a sign says, "SLOW, CURVES AHEAD", please be cautious. I'm sorry to hear that the mountain has claimed another life. There are enough crosses on that road already. PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY!
