Flying horses couldn't drag me away

Thunder and lightning over desert mountains, while acres and acres of green grass are nothing but golf courses. The Palm Springs area approaches Las Vegas levels of insanity and hubris, in its triumph of irrigation over nature.

We've been holed up in our motel for another day, finishing off more articles for magazines in the UK, though we did manage a break for dinner in a rather decent deli, and a trip to a bookshop. Oops, there seem to be a pile of books in the rental car that weren't there before...

Tomorrow? Tomorrow is a day off, in which we're planning to take a camera or two into Joshua Tree.

In which case, here's a picture from last week in LA:
