Old Military planes flying over Indio

Several days the old planes were overhead

Then another day we had balloons again

Pretty Hot Air Balloons

Close enough to hear them

This was cool watching them "touch the moon"

Lake Cahuilla, Riverside County Park

Surrounding rugged hills

Thie park has a pool with shades

Sandy campsites

Some sites with full hook ups and shade trees

The water of Lake Cahuilla is gorgeous aqua colored

It looks like a tropical paradise in the desert

Also had some brilliant yellow desert flowers

View from the opposite side of the lake

Nearby the park is some homes starting in the low ONE MILLIONS...

Also the surrounding neighborhood has horses in corrals, this is a statue

The horses are for the Polo Field, goes with the $ MILLION...

Over the past few days we've had some interestings items overhead which always brings out the neighbors. There have been some old military planes flying over, maybe from Palm Springs Airport WWII Museum. Also some hot air balloons coming from the south west this time trying to make it to the Indio Fairgrounds. It was interesting to see a couple of them tangle with the moon, at least it looked like the touched the moon.

Then someone told us about a Riverside County Park that was a must to check out, so we went about 7 miles toward the mountains, in Indio to Lake Cahuilla Park. It is the name of the local band of Native Americans pronounced like: Kă - Wēē’- ă

The water of Lake Cahuilla is absolutely like the aqua waters of a tropical Caribbean Island. The campsites have hook ups, only a few with 50 amp electric, mostly 30 amp, some with sewer, but all with a view of the lake. They also have a pool with shades, which I'm sure they need in the summer heat. Winter, especially Jan, Feb & Mar is their busiest season. They even have group and "horse" camping at the other end of the lake.

The surrounding Indio area is quite surprising. The local neighborhood has horses, for the Polo Field and they are currently selling homes that START in the "LOW ONE MILLIONS".
