Indio with the WINs - a Great Time!

After my time in Apache Junction, I rejoined the WINs in Indio, CA. We parked at the Fantasy Springs casino there, and were treated to great sunsets and views of snow on the mountains to the west.

I really wanted to go see the murals in town. They are spectacular! Most have to do with the history of the area.

This one was different, and my favorite. Beautiful hummingbirds!

We also visited the Coachella Valley Preserve.

The palm trees there are just magnificent!

We went on a hike through the palm trees -

And walked up a hill where we looked down on them.

The casino next to ours, Spotlight 29, had a Pow Wow one day. The dancers were moving so fast it was hard to get a picture.

Some of the headdresses were just incredible!

We also went to Shields Date Garden for lunch and to see the movie, "The Romance and Sex Life of the Date."

After lunch, we walked through their garden out back.

We got to see some of the ladders that they must climb to pick the dates. Scary!

And I went over to the Coachella Valley Wild Bird Center. They take care of birds that are injured. They were all really cute and pretty friendly.

Indio was a great stop!


I love comments!
