Since Palm Springs was closer to her house than Georgia, I popped over to Winchester, CA (near Temecula) to see cousin Stephanie.

Except...with my arm held out imaging holding a pitchfork, standing in front of a house, made me think of another classic image....

We had a little hike in an area near Palm Springs City Hall, with some views of the city.

Hard to convey with this picture and the perspective, but if one happened to slip off the trail, it would be a fairly long way down hill.
