Palm Desert California

Not too far from Palm Springs. On the other side of Joshua Tree. The Salton Sea is in the background. In the same Valley as the Coachella Festival. Here you will find Palm Desert. Once the fastest growing area in California. It has leveled off now to full-time residents, compared to how it started as a ‘Snow-Birders’ paradise.

Quick History: Starting in the 1920’s, it was known as the Old MacDonald Ranch. Really! No Seriously, it really was...Pre-1950’s were Indian Farmers of the now extinct San Cayetano Tribe. The first residential economy occurred in 1943 as part of an Army maintenance camp. This morphed into an upscale shopping district, much like Rodeo Drive (I know hard to believe). In 1951 Palm Dersert became the official name. Dates were and still are the primary crop of the area. But they also grow Palm for landscaping as well.

What attracted me? The grove upon grove of Palm trees. Just about every Palm you can find. So what better way to photograph them, then to walk the rows.

Never could find put why the ladders thirty feet in the air (actually grown with the palm)
