Christmas in the Desert

Not your typical Currier and Ives greeting card image, but in unsuspecting places holiday spirit thrives in the desert.  At the Thousand Palms Oasis, reindeer fashioned from the bark of  palm trees lined the fence at the entrance.  When the night temperature began to dip into the 40s we chased the chill  away with hot chocolate and s'mores toasted in open fire pits at The Living Desert, a space transformed by 750,000 lights, an impressive model train set, and giggling children of all ages.

  1. FANTASTIC images. I remember being there with you a few years ago (during T-Gives) and already the desert was beguiling....
