Author Notes
Image: "Idyllwild and San Jacinto Mountains with Desert Wildflowers" - Photo taken in LaQuinta, California, Spring 2017.
Thank you to my friend Karen Mathena for supplying the outstanding photograph and thank you for reading my poem.
Idyllwild, where I lived for 10 years before relocating to Wisconsin, is where you see the snow-covered mountains. Each week I drove down the "hill" to Palm Desert and LaQuinta to do my shopping. About an hour's drive each way.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
