Finding the Wild: The Coachella Valley Preserve By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

I remember a Thursday night some years back, when I met a couple visiting the Coachella Valley at Palm Springs’ VillageFest. I was providing information on the Joshua Tree Gateway Communities as part of a visitor outreach program conducted by the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The Treasures of Desertland By Steve Brown

One of the Coachella Valley’s greatest places to visit are also the easiest to miss if you’re not careful. One such location is Desertland, the Moorten Botanical Garden, on South Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs (just south of the turn where East Palm Canyon Drive splits off and heads toward Cathedral City and the rest of the valley).

Trio: Modern Palm Springs Dining You Can Bank On By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

Restaurants can convey the essence and culture of a community as well as a museum or landmark, and sometimes, they can embody its uniqueness better than just about anything else. A great restaurant is a place where locals and visitors come, not only to dine, but to get a feel for, and be part of, the life of its community.

Experience Classic Palm Springs at Copley’s on Palm Canyon By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

Time hasn’t always been easy on the Palm Springs that was once Hollywood’s stylish desert playground. It isn’t as simple as it once was to feel close to the spirit that drew movie stars, along with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, out to the desert.

Orient Yourself with the Desert Institute By Delphine Lucas

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

One of the joys of living in the desert is having the opportunity to take Desert Institute classes. I recently enrolled in “Basic Map & Compass” because my husband and I love to explore Joshua Tree National Park and other places across the desert. We hiked in the park using a National Geographic map, only to find that the reality around us bore no resemblance to what was on the map.

The Tortoise Telegraph : News gathered around the desert – at its own pace Deplorable Stupidity: 27, Timeless Treasures

The state of our California State Parks is heartbreakingly sad. Our state’s natural, cultural, and historic treasures are in a state of limbo and neglect by both Sacramento and voters.

Dry Heat By Steve Brown

I love exploring the desert. All of it. We are blessed with an impressive and diverse range of things to do and see here, and for those of us who can’t get enough, we’re in no danger of running out of what we crave anytime soon.

Native Wind: Steve Rushingwind

11/01/2012 ● By Steve

Continuing in new directions, Steve has launched The Rushingwind Project, drawing blues, rock, and jazz influences into songs still led by Native American flute. Between Bridge, with Mucklow, and The Rushingwind Project, I’m hearing Steve take his music into new territories, and I’m cheering every hawk’s call and cliché that falls along the way.
