After my mom and I got back from Europe, we (or actually she…) decided to go out and visit our favorite place in the desert. Pioneertown is so much fun and it’s very close to a national park called Joshua Tree (my mom also said something about listening to some music called “Joshua Tree” or whatever—probably means it has something to do with the band U2 cuz my mom loves U2…)
Also, California got LOTS of rain while we were in Europe and mom says that means there will be flowers blooming in the desert! Well, we did see a lot of flowers, but I guess that there were even more a few weeks before we were able to get out.
We also went to a place called Borrego Springs—that is in a state park called Anza Borrego. Mom said that my grandma and grandpa used to spend the winters out here for many years—my grandpa’s favorite thing was playing golf and my grandma loved to make stuff, especially quilts.
While we were in Borrego Springs we stayed at a really pretty hotel called Casa del Zorro! (I also learned that “Zorro” isn’t just that cool guy on TV who wears a mask and can fight with a sword, it means “fox” in Spanish.) I always chase foxes when I’m in Greenwich so I was excited to chase foxes here too!
