Cool Windy Day

Yesterday (Sunday) I arrived in the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs area) for a week long stay. Excellent timing. 90 degrees was the high yesterday. Big cool down since yesterday. Today, the temps were in the low 70s.

That was the view as I headed out for a hike this morning. The overcast and gray skies were not the problem. It was the strong and gusty winds stirring up lots of dirt. The wind and dust made for an unpleasant hike which I cut short after almost being blown down a hillside. Shielding my eyes from dust and with my balance/focus issues, it was time to call the hike complete.

Cool weather is predicted for the entire week. That works for me. Cool temperatures and a mild breeze make for a good hike -- another day later this week.


  1. We've been in the Smokies for the past 10 days and can't get over the lack of wind here. Too much wind up in Wisconsin all year long, and it seems like I hear about wind a lot from you folks out in the desert too.

  2. We are still finding desert sand and dust in the basement of the motorhome and are about to head back to the southwest to add more.

    Nice temps you will be having!
