Throughout the nearly 10 years that Julie and I have been waterfalling locally in the Southern California area, we admit that we've overlooked the waterfalls in the desert areas just east of the Los Angeles basin. For one reason or another (whether it's drought, scorching hot weather, other travel priorities, etc.) we've even avoided coming out here.
But that was then.
Last Sunday, Julie and I did a brief getaway together to Tahquitz Falls near Palm Springs. We were so pleasantly surprised by the experience that we do plan on going waterfalling in the deserts more often now.
To see why, check out our travel blog entry or our write-up about the falls.
