Back in Palm Springs

We spent two months in Palm Springs last winter and really liked it, so we are here again.  We wanted to hit the International Film Festival, so we have tickets to seven films in eight days...saw our first one last night.  We also want to hit some new sights like the Living Desert Zoo, Painted Canyon and maybe even get to Salvation Mountain (wait till you see THAT place, look it up online).  We are staying in a very high-end RV resort, not our usual style, but it is like a mini-vacation with paved sites, gorgeous landscaping, a golf course, six pools and many events like dinner dances.  Here are a couple shots of our neighborhood:

So all around us on three sides it is like an oasis and out our back window over the wall--the desert (taken from our RV roof).

We put up our bird feeder and hummingbird feeder, since we will be here a while, and were rewarded pretty quickly by these little visitors.  Looking forward to seeing more!

This is a Verdin, a desert scrub bird.  He keeps trying to drink from our hummingbird feeder.
Male Costa's Hummingbird.  I love his cheek feathers!
