The Living Desert is a MUST-DO for Visitors to Palm Springs

Baby Giraffe


This weekend my brother was visiting from Kansas and we wanted to share the beauty of our desert with he and his girlfriend.  We all have our list of the top places to go and things to do here.  

I posted a Top 10 Things to do in Palm Springs Area list a few months ago and there is no doubt that

The Living Desert belongs on that list!

Not only do they have an impressive collection of African and North American wild life- they also have gardens bursting with cactus, sage, wildflowers and all kinds of desert plants.  You can also access a trail and wilderness loop and actually take a hike out into the desert, up a small mountain, and view the San Andreas fault from a viewing station.

Cholla Cactus





Golden Barrel Cactus








Depending on what time of the day you are sure to see some amazing animals and if you are lucky you will get an up-close experience like we had yesterday.  This beautiful mountain lion came right up to greet us!

Several years ago, one of my daughters, her husband, grandkids and I took a vacation in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area.  One of the more memorable evenings was at The Blue Coyote.  Of all the restaurants I have been to, I think it was one of the most enjoyable.  And the food was out of this world!

Kathy - I love it when friends and family come to visit.  It gives me a reason to do all of the fun things the area is known for.  The Living Desert is definitely a must see for anyone that comes to visit in the Palm Springs area.  Great photos!
