Presidents' Day weekend was the only shot of a vacation we were going to get before summer since Spring Break is already booked with Laura's midterms. We had one heckuva time driving into a massive atmospheric river that pounded the desert. Arroyos flooded, highways flooded, cities flooded... it was insanely fun to witness from the safety of our new Ascent. We saw the Mojave River born again, and the immense power of flash flooding in the White Water River that flows through downtown Palm Desert.
Once the rain subsided we headed out to visit Anza-Borego State Park and Thousand Palms Oasis near the Coachella Valley Preserve to get-in several nice hikes. The hikes also provided me with an opportunity to test out my new Nikon D850 and 24-70mm lens. Mind... blown...! Enjoy the pics and the videos below.
