TGIF! Which means I show off some more of my digital photos. The theme this week is The View From My Window. I’ve amped it up just a little by showing you many views from a variety of windows that I looked through this past week. Enjoy!
This is the view from the puddlejumper we flew from LA to Palm Springs. I’m not sure where in the trip this was but probably closer to the PS than the LA.
On the flight back to Boston Logan, I looked directly down and upon some ice flows on a big body of water (we think it was Lake Erie). Cool, huh?
For the next couple of pictures, I feature the room from our hotel in Rancho Mirage. It wasn’t the best view of the resort, but it was convenient to the parking lot. ha!
We didn’t do a lot of the big touristy things – only the Palm Springs Tram. AWESOME! I can’t share all the details of it because I failed to retain any facts and figures like elevation, etc. I believe it was San Jacinto and I do remember it was cold up there. In Palm Springs, it was heavenly dry and warm. Warm like hanging out at the pool and needing to jump in when TOO hot! But up on the mountain, it was 30 degrees and worse. The wind was blowing hard and it was freezing! I was wearing shorts, silly me.
The tram car rotated! So we saw every angle going up and coming back down. I recommend this activity if you are ever in the Desert Cities. Did you know that this is where the two plates of the continents come together? At least, that’s what the tour guide told me (on the wives’ “Art Tour & Lunch of El Paseo Drive”. la ti da) But looking it up on Wikipedia tells a bigger story so… Go read more here if you’re interested: ”The San Andreas Fault, a right-lateral strike-slip fault, marks a transform (or sliding) boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate.”
Which brings us to TODAY. This is the view south from the chair at my PC where I sit right now as I type this. [Looking at this makes me want to explain that the chair really does "go" in this room, despite the apparent decor-clash with the curtains...]
And getting closer to the window, this is what I see.
