The Important Question is a recurring thing we do on Fridays (and in this case, a Thursday) here at Cactus Hugs to get input on food, places, and things in the Coachella Valley from the people who know it best: you! Brought to you by Riviera Palm Springs.
The Coachella Valley and its surrounding areas are a right out of any photographer’s wet dream. The sunsets, the mountains, and just about everything inside of Joshua Tree National Park make for killer pics – yet, most tourists to the area end up just posting pics of The Saguaro, dashboard thermometers, and them in front of a pink door to their Instagram accounts. So let’s give everyone a hand and talk about the best places in the desert take some cool photos.
As someone who has lived in town for about a thousand years now, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how incredible this place is. The other day, while driving down Highway 74, I stopped for the first time in a long time at Vista Point. Of course, I grabbed my phone to snap a pic.
I know. I know. It’s not the greatest photo ever, but it did get me thinking: what are the coolest spots for photos? – and this could be anywhere: a cool building, somewhere with an amazing view, a hike that leads to that perfect spot to perfectly capture the Palm Springs sunset, or whatever.
Let’s discuss in the comments. Bonus points if you add a pic of your spot with your comment.
