Good Morning My Fun Fri-Yay Friends!
If you’re feeling fun or not so much this morning, I’ll hope to give you a lift somewhere somehow durning this post. Let me just say to start, if I could get up on this chair and reach both of my legs to the side with a smile all the while of feeling like I might rip in 2, you’re doing ok! I used to do the splits no problem and now.. oh NVM it’s Friday and we’re gearing for the weekend and the question remains: To be a sloth or get out in nature? I’ll be doing a little of both. What about you?

Stretch but not too far
Get out of your comfort zone
Gems found exploring
On to San Bernadino to visit my nephew and his roommate:
Special times with family
Next Stop: Palm Desert, California
Rocks Hold Emotions
Release it to the mountains
tears tucked behind pride
The Palm Desert Bump-n-Grind Trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in the Coachella Valley. Locals may also refer to the trail as the Patton Trail, Desert Drive Trail, Dog Poop Trail, and Desert Mirage Trail. The trail starts out narrow at the trailhead and widens as you go along. It is popular among those looking to get a workout and has an elevation gain of about 1,000 feet as it climbs to an overlook that offers nice views of Palm Desert. A number of endangered wildlife species inhabit the area and it may be possible to view them during your hike, especially bighorn sheep.
On top of the world

Strength for one and all
Final Stop: Desert Hot Springs:
To be honest the only reason we go to Desert Hot Springs at the end of the trip is to decompress which is the best but we don’t leave the place we’re staying except maybe to go to Joshua Tree (not to be missed if you visit with their awesome hiking).
Release Toxins Through Organs
Hydrate Rest Refresh
So my rule of thumb when saying somewhere is they must have a bathtub since I miss mine so much. When I finally got one I stayed in it for 4 hours and meditated, wrote etc. I know crazy but crazy good to me. Check out this cool Igloo and Himalayan Sea Salt room which was so awesome.
Living like a prune
Aging at it’s best
And that sums it up. Now I’m just living in memories of that amazing experience. Thanks truly for visiting and have a wonderful Fri-Yay and weekend doing whatever floats your boat.
