A Getaway to Palm Springs

Last month during Dan's fall break weekend we booked a weekend getaway in Palm Springs. We found a deal on Groupon for a hotel and off we went! In addition to exploring the Palm Springs downtown, our hotel pool and the impressive Palm Springs Art Museum we did a lot of hiking.

 We went to the Indian Canyons where we did some desert hiking through the Palm Oasis - basically just a giant palm tree forest.


Before we headed back to Claremont we took the Palm Springs aerial tramway up 8,500 feet to the top of Mt San Jacinto where we did a nice long hike in the wilderness before grabbing a hot cocoa to warm up!

  2. OH! That's not how I envisioned Palm Springs... I always think of a fancy celebrity getaway.
