Desert Spirit

Last week I was in the Coachella Valley....Palm Springs,California. The contrast of the snow capped mountains and the flat desert valley enhanced with an oasis of tall palm trees and wall to wall golf courses, not to mention days of glorious sunshine, provides a life style like no other! This magnificent life-size bronze statue of horses running across a stream caught my attention. The design is called Desert Spirit by the sculpture David Spellerberg. It is located near the front entry gates of the Saddle Club at Griffin Ranch......a Country Club and world class Equestrian Center conceived by the late entertainer Merv Griffin. Take a closer look.... I think it is just beautiful in the setting!
