T-Rexcellent!

I bet you didn't know this but California has dinosaurs.
And I'm not talking about fossils, We're talking about life size dinos.
They live in the desert on the way to Palm Springs, right next to a date farm.
BTW the date farm owns a little restaurant called, Hadley's.
They make the absolute best date shakes in the world, it is probably a moral sin to pass this place and not stop by to get one.
It may be 110 degrees and howling wind (like it was when I went), but my friend, it is worth it and you will thank me.
Anyways, back to the dinosaurs.






Oh hey there they are.
Yeah, it is the weirdest place, they are literally in a parking lot next to a gas station.
Not sure what the thought process was for the guy who put them there.
Maybe he had just one the lottery and really liked dinosaurs?
Sure let's go with that.
But that still doesn't explain the location...between a date farm and a gas station.
Hmm, any ideas?


It's one of those touristy things that your parents would have made you take a picture with when you were little on family vacation, but now that you are grown up you know it's really lame and cheesy but you need to take a picture with it anyways.
As you can see due to the aforementioned wind, I am being blown away.
It's cooler if you pretend that another T-Rex is RAWRING very ferociously from the left side.

Well that's all for today you crazy kids, but stay tuned to hear about my trip to Palm Springs!

  7. Haha as you say, these are soooo cheesy, but you just have to take a pic anyway. Love it. Your blog has definitely inspired me to plan a trip to California a-sap. I have a friend that lives there and I've kind of already invited myself to stay with him early next year.
