Southern California, Nov & Jan (Part I)

Hello all. I'm posting some photos taken from two trips to Southern California this past November, and last week. Since the trips were so close together, I'm mixing the photos together as well.

First, Manhattan Beach, near the airport.

Then on to Palm Springs / Palm Desert

El Paseo, The main shopping street in Palm Desert, and probably in the whole Palm Springs area. One thing I noticed about shopping areas in California, is that while they are often beautiful, they are rarely very busy or crowded. Not much people watching, compared to similar physical environments in the Mediterranean, or in NY for that matter.

And then on to Lake Arrowhead / Big Bear. Huge contrast after only 1 1/2 hours of driving. That's one of the things I love about Southern California. The diversity of places to visit.
