This Sunday we did the Cove to Lake Cahuilla Trail, a moderate 6 mile hike with an elevation change of 548 feet. The trail follows along the wash next to The Quarry golf course, a private desert country club. On our previous hike to this trail we saw several Bighorn Sheep but not today. Instead we saw roadrunners, pelicans, ants, long distance swimmers and a flock of birds behaving strangely.
Come join us on our hike by watching the above video.

We went to the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California. The grounds featured the restored home where the President was born and raised. The exhibits are full of historical information about Nixon's life and what he did leading up to and including his presidency. This is a beautiful museum with great exhibits that are very informative. You could spend days going through all the paperwork on display. Watch the above video.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library hosted its annual Veterans Day Event to honor the men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. Some of the activities included civil war encampment and live music. Watch the above video.
The parking lots were so filled up, we had to park our car at the bottom of the hill and ride a shuttle back up. It was so worth it! A great tribute to Ronald Reagan. Some of my favorites: The Air Force One, Berlin Wall and many intriguing political exhibits. Watch the SlideShow below to view pictures.

The Coachella Valley has finally cooled down after a long hot summer and I'm ready to hike again! Unfortunately my hubby hurt his back and it will take awhile before he can join us. Jim and Leo's already been hiking for the past couple of weeks and I was so happy to join them today. We hiked the
Ridge Trail to Pushawalla Palms and really got a good work out climbing up to the high plateaus.
It was a moderate 8 mile trek. Watch the above video and below SLIDESHOW.
