THE JOYS OF ARRIVING AFTER DARK.
HE FIRST TIME I EVER WENT TO PALM SPRINGS, THE

one moonless Friday in her red Miata. Even with the convertible top down, when we pulled into town we couldn't discern
much in the darkness beyond a few tall cacti and some floodlit palms.

The thrill hit us the next morning. How had we not noticed the
10,000-foot snowcapped peak towering above our hotel, or the perfect patchwork of pools and fairways stretching to the opposite horizon? The rising sun turned the mountains lavender and gold. I'd never
seen skies so blue.
