  1. Remember the lush date groves of Indio? The cathedral-like vaulted ceiling of palm fronds shadowing the road so welcome after the glare of the desert sun. Now just a few scraggly looking date palms at the edges of sweeping freeways…

  2. Hi Marcia, Wow, such a great opportunity for teaching what you love doing most! You fit right in. Love your black and white photos from the 70s in Cochella Valley.
