While in the Palm Springs area, most of my hikes have been at the Coachella Preserve. Wide open spaces with few people. My kind of place. Could be described as a minimalist environment with few bushes and no trees. Nothing blocks the expansive views. In some ways, it is like eastern Montana where the plains go on for tens of miles. Once again: my kind of place.
On a previous hike at the Preserve, I came across this Peace intaglio.
Yesterday, my hike took me past that same intaglio. A modification had been done. Why.
After repairing the changes and returning it to peace, I moved on.
Just a few feet away is a smiley face intaglio. After I fixed some minor facial features -- like the schnoz -- I took the portrait.
And with that I hope the intaglios survive to amuse or frustrate future hikers.
