  • O'Donnell House Historic TourO'Donnell House Historic Tours Palm Springs, California
    Atop a mountain, looking out over the Ojo Del Deseierto desert and Palm Springs, California, the O'Donnell House sits majestically like an oasis in a wild barren land. It was designed by Charles Tanner and constructed in 1925 for oil baron Thomas O'Donnell by Nellie Coffman, the founder of Palm Springs and owner of the magnificent Desert Inn of Palm Springs. As you climb the rock faced road to enter the wrought iron gates, you will notice the words, "Ojo Del Desierto" etched against the bright blue sky, and the beautiful house that sits astride a cleft in the mountain side and can turn to see one of the best panoramic views of the area. Sitting there like flower blooming in the desert barrenness, the huge terrace sprawls across an expanse of surrealism. The estate has been refurbished by the Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn with the O'Donnell house and grounds containing rare and original tile floors, bathrooms, antique furniture, redwood ceilings, gorgeous rock work, unusual gardens and incredible views on the desert surrounding you like a warm cozy blanket.

  • Painted CanyonPainted Canyon Palm Springs, California
    The Painted Canyon in Palm Springs, California is like stepping onto an artist's palette, with stupendous soft pastel colors, of pink, brown, gray, green and red, that mesmerize your eyesight and slowly help you realize the magnificence of this unbelievable creation, caused by upheavals and earthquakes that have somehow created a landscape unlike any you have ever seen. The rock outcroppings and formations are just as beautiful with high canyon walls and narrow gorge trails that meander around the desert in no particular direction or thought. The San Andreas Fault runs through here like a midnight racer streaking through the dark desert night with big horn sheep, desert tortoises and spotted bats cruising the region for dinner, safe havens or nestings. There are palo verde and smoke trees abounding, all placed here by God, for you to enjoy, walking, hiking or biking, set on 41,300 acres of spectacular landscaping that only the Master could have created. It is a photographers mecca and has drawn desert enthusiasts here for centuries, with the fantastic colored rocks set against a brilliant blue sky, with occasional wisps of white clouds floating effortlessly by. The trails can be fairly easy, or take the loop around which is definitely harder and should only be attempted by those in good condition, with the proper clothing, shoes and water, lots of water. Desert or mountain hiking can be tedious and often dangerous if you aren't an accomplished climber or hiker. But the sights, the views, the panorama is something you will never forget, or want to either. Although the best way to remember it and to show your friends and family is to bring a camera for the shots will be so beautiful that some people will wonder if you are seeing mirages or what.
