Palm Springs Diary - The End

If you're guessing we had a pretty good time in Palm Springs, I'd say "Yeah!!" But I really didn't mean to make it into an encyclopedia. Pardon me on that. We were only there one week, but we did quite a bit - coulda done more. But I doubt we'll ever get back that way again.

As I said to a friend: My 'WIsh List' has changed to a 'Bucket List'. Palm Springs was never really on either list ... so I view this excursion as a nice happenstance. And it was.

On my real Bucket List I really have only one event: to sail on the Legendary Bluenose schooner - out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I have my doubts that will ever manifest.

To Celebrate our last evening before heading back to Calgary (snow) we headed for the Jackalope Ranch - another of the Kaiser Family of Restaurants - which also included the Palms Springs Hogsbreath Inn (which we missed out on as it closed just before we go here)

The Legendary Jackalope

The Jackalope is a mythical animal of North American folklore described as a jackrabbit with antelope horns.

"The Jackalope has bred the rise of many outlandish (and largely tongue-in-cheek) claims as to the creature's habits. Even President Ronald Reagan enjoyed the legend as he humorously teased reporters in 1980 during a tour of his Californian ranch, where he had a rabbit head with antlers mounted on his wall. ..."
