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.

Whitewater Preserve and fall colors

Yesterday hubby piled me into his car, along with our son and his family, and off to the Whitewater Preserve we went.  The preserve is up in Whitewater Canyon and it is along the river that flows down from the San Bernardino mountains.  There is a fish hatchery up there and we thought the grandson might enjoy seeing the "fishies"...he sure did!  He ran around, examined leaves, LOOKED at the fish, crawled under picnic tables, and wore himself out!  :-)  I was amazed to see that there still were beautiful fall colors and leaves up there, but it is in a kind of protected zone (there are even palm trees growing up there!), so it doesn't get as cold as some other areas.  There wasn't much water in the river, but after a couple more storms, I'm sure there will be!  It was good to get out, after being inside for 8 days!  :-)
