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.

Winter Wonderland

Our local mountains turned white overnight Thursday night and Friday morning I was itchin' to drive up and see the snow.  I only had to drive 15 minutes.  There was fresh snow in Pinyon Pines, where my friend Barbara lives.  And, at 8:30 a.m, it was still snowing!   :-)  I cruised around her neighborhood.  I didn't wish to intrude on her family or her chores, so I stayed in my nice, warm, comfy car and took photos from the driver's side.  HA!  I know...that's cheating, but, hey, it was COLD!

 The now empty Sugar Loaf Cafe.  I sure hope somebody buys it and turns it into a market!  This is at about 3900 feet.
 Taken from the empty parking lot at the Sawmill Trail...
 I liked the snow on the fallen agave.
 Looking back toward the road toward Palm Desert...
 Again, from the parking lot at the trail head...
 Cold mailboxes!
 Outdoor furniture covered with snow...
 I liked the red truck against the snow...
 Barbara's red barn...
Another view of the mailboxes before I left to drive home...

That's a lot of roadside mailboxes. Snow is such a treat for desert dwellers.

wow, nice photos. Love the barn - love the one with the fence on the right ...they're all good! We were up in Pismo this last week - hanging around SLO and Avila and Atascadero and Shell Beach, etc. I took SO many photos. It was beautiful but quite chilly. Saw rainbows two different times. We got home to some snow - mostly melted on the streets but still on the trees and my roof and deck.
