Color Blocking in Palm Springs

Naturally, as a sea-side dweller, I’m most comfortable in mild temperatures. That said, I have spent a limited amount of time in the desert. 

Prior to this past Memorial Day weekend, track and field was the only reason I ever experienced the desert. In my teen years I ran track and for three out of the four years of high school, I found myself in Pasco, WA (one of the Tri-Cities in Eastern Washington), where they held the Pasco Invitational (the state-wide meet). 

So when one of my best friends invited me to join her, 4 other fabulous women, and 2 wonderful men on a trip to Palm Springs for the holiday weekend, I was super excited to experience the desert for real this time. 

We stayed at the Saguaro Hotel, which was complete explosion of color against the shades of brown, yellow, and subtle green.  Below are pictures of our friends against one of the many colored walls at the hotel. 

The trip was a whirlwind and though I probably only spent a solid 48 hours on the ground (and a casual 12 RT in the air), it was 100% worth it. 

More soon!
