New Year's Day I traveled to Palm Desert to the Living Desert to meet up with my friend to take photos. It was a little difficult getting up the day after attending a New Year's Eve party but I managed. My husband planned to stay home and nurse his hangover and I thought I could either sit around and do nothing all day or actually get out and take some photos. I'm glad I did. After spending about spending 5-1/2 hours at the Living Desert, I hit the road and heading home. Now that was hard. I was tired and hungry and the drive seemed extra long now.
