Desert Sunrise at La Quinta

La Quinta is our favorite town in the Palm Springs desert area because the mountains feel bigger and closer there. It’s especially nice in the early morning when the sunrise creates interesting shadows among the majestic palm trees and mountains, with bright desert colors in the foreground.

We never go to the desert without visiting Shields Date Garden in Indio at least once to get their famous date milkshake. Recently they have introduced a coffee date shake that was also really good.
