Life in the Wild West...sort of

I've lived in Palm Springs so long now that I've grown accustomed to the surroundings. Cactus plants, aloe, palm trees, tumbleweeds, olive trees, and smoke trees, all used to seem foreign to me. When I would see these things they never phased me. Until recently...I was visiting Smoke Tree Ranch and came across this old wagon. It made me feel like I was living in the Wild Wild West. Well at an historic ranch anyway. Smoke Tree Ranch dates back to the 1930's and has operated as a resort now for more than 60 years. I love places like this. They still have the old wild west charm, character that makes you feel as though you are living in the wild west. I didn't set out to write a plug post for the Smoke Tree Ranch, but I have to admit, I am smitten with the place. I've driven past it for well over a decade and never thought much about it, but I'm happy that spending time there brought a smile to my face.
