Sunny Southern California is the place to be in February. While summers in this part of the country can be unbearably hot winter is, according to my pretty wife, “paradise.” We are newcomers to the Palm Springs area. Though we’ve traveled all over the country we’ve never visited the diverse desert here in the Coachella Valley. Our friends at Ford provided a new Mustang convertible for the trip so we can make our exploration in style while enjoying the sunshine and warm breezes around the endless groves of palm trees in the series of cities around Palm Springs and dry land.
