La Quinta~


La Quinta Resort was built-in 1926.

It is located in the town of La Quinta, which is in the northwestern portion of The Sonoran Desert, in Southern California’s Coachella Valley.

The resort is adobe, made of over 100,000 handmade adobe bricks. The roofing contains over 60,000 handmade terracotta tiles.

Hand painted Talavera tiles are everywhere.

The resort is famous for it’s extensive floral gardens and fountains.

It is especially beautiful when the cactus are blooming!

Cheers to you from hot, but lovely La Quinta California~

  1. Cindy, I think you have been kicked out of my reader, as you mentioned happens to someone above. I haven’t seen a post from you for a long time and didn’t know I was missing them! Just came across you again as a reblog on someone else’s site. I changed my settings to notify me every time you post, as I love your photos and hearing about the holler and your travels!
