For various reasons I do a lot of trips to the east end of the Coachella Valley. Shows in Indian Wells, Indio, La Quinta and the studio I work with in La Quinta. I take Highway 86 north until just past county line and then turn off and go through the fields. The route is a pleasant drive in the country through fields of various crops and citrus and palm groves.
The drive home is equally pleasant, but one highlight for me is the concept that from that area, directions to my house include the instruction ‘Turn right at the tinsel bicycle’.
