To get to Palm Springs from San Diego, we took the scenic route, off the main highways, East through the Southern end of Mount San Jacinto State Park. It was H-O-T in August. Aubrey told me it would be hot, I told him I liked dry heat. But man, oh man it was hot.
Aub, Oscar and I did a whirlwind exploration trip to California this Summer as a way to curb my obsession with all things Palm Springs. You can’t fly into Palm Springs (yet) direct from Toronto, so one of the ways was to fly direct to San Diego and, do some road tripping to get to my destination. A funny thing happened though – I was totally taken aback with how much I loved what I didn’t set out to see. The coast won my heart and although I loved Palm Springs – I’m still amazed that I’m more enthusiastic about the places I was terribly unenthused to go to. I went with the purpose to shoot some photography for my portfolio but mixed it with family vacation time.
