Palm Desert Thanksgiving

We've been at Thousand Trails Palm Springs for a couple weeks now.  As I mentioned in my last post, we met up with a group of friends here for Thanksgiving and have had a great time visiting.  I posted one Thanksgiving pic, but thought I'd add a couple others I took plus a group shot our friend Sissy took...it turned out better than mine.

The group at the table!  18 of us at Thanksgiving this year
Friday after Thanksgiving we drove our friends, Dave & Anne, to Borrego Springs to show them where we like to boondock in that area.  They then showed us where to find these metal sculptures in Borrego Springs…

More metal sculptures
I had seen the metal sculptures mentioned on the internet but had never actually seen them…amazing!  There are many more that I didn't photograph, all of them are great.

Tomorrow we take off for some more boondocking…always nice to get away from everything and just enjoy nature!
