i woke up at a very crowded campground this morning and got on the road heading toward the desert. i saw countless windmills along both sides of the interstate.. it was great to see renewable energy becoming more prevalent. i went to palm desert and ended up in the el paseo shopping district where i stopped for a little bit. it was nice to step outside and feel the high energy of the desert heat. the upscale shops in the desert reminded me of when i had visited scottsdale years back. i loved the warm desert colors of all the architecture in palm desert. i looked back at what i wrote this day and it looks like it felt really amazing being in the desert.. some of what i wrote was "even at 89 or 90 degrees i wasn’t sweating! the energy here felt really high! it’s like a celebration of the love of the sun!” i think it felt good to relax in the warmth.. i think i was finally pretty much done with the work project that had dragged on for most of the trip too. after walking around the outdoor shops, i went over to the nearby campground i was staying at and checked in. the campground was filled with palm trees, lined down all the rows of rv spots, though it was a bit loud being right next to the interstate. i'd continue my desert exploration in the morning.
