Indio California is truly an oasis town in the desert. Kris and I had traveled through the high deserts on our last trip between Barstow and Las Vegas. But other than a visit to Palm Springs she had never seen the low desert. And a true stereo typical desert it is too. Complete with bad lands, dry gulches and even few sand dunes tossed in for good measure.
Indio hosts the massive Riverside County Fair each year in conjunction with the Date Festival. That’s Dates as in food from a palm tree not a social mixer for guys and girls.
