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.

RETURN to Oak Glen

After sitting around the house trying to allow my ankle to heal (remember Gigondas knocked me down last Sunday), and hubby sitting around the house forever, we decided to drive back to Oak Glen and buy an apple pie and some Spartan apples.  Spartan apples are an early variety and they are sweet and juicy.  It was a beautiful day for driving yesterday~clouds were hanging over the mountains and it looked like we might get some sprinkles!

 This is Riley's Farm, a recreated old farm....One of the many places to stop and enjoy!

 I had to use the privy!  Very nice and clean!
 Beautiful views
 Thunderheads developing
 Look out into one of the apple orchards through this curved vine
 Skies got darker and daarker
Lovely grove of sequoias, cedars, and conifers.

We ate lunch and hubby bought his pie.  I bought a bag of Spartan apples.  On the way home, we saw sprinkles down by Hemet and Lake Elsinore.  It was a beautiful day for a drive.
