I spent the weekend out near Palm Springs training and laughing with a friend. It was a good weekend.

Despite the fact that much of the year it is hell-fire hot, there are a lot of crops grown in the desert.

Date palms.

Vineyard that appears dead, but I actually think it is not.

Behind the crates are red-leaf, then green-leaf lettuce. Beyond the leafy greens is the Salton Sea.

Nothing but this without . . .


It's actually kind of odd. Riding my bike along was mostly desert scenes - just brown, dead stuff. But then I'd roll along sections of just really lush green grass. Pretty.

I love how many of the older roads in the desert are lined with tall rows of palm trees. It was a great weekend of training with some new scenery and no arm warmers!
