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".
