Morning Hikes

Attraction

Quote:
Sunrise finds spa guests readying themselves for a brisk morning hike. If you've never experienced dawn in the desert, you're in for a real treat. Early mornings are especially lovely when the sun is rising. Pink, purple and magenta hues light the sky giving everything and everyone a rosy glow. Request that wake-up call, rub the sleep out of your eyes and don't miss those morning hikes!

Orange Blossoms

Story/Tip

Quote:
If you can, plan a trip in the spring when the orange groves in the nearby valley are in bloom. If you've never smelled orange blossoms you're in for a real treat. The fragrance is so powerful it practically carries you away. It is like ambrosia, a smell you'll never forget.
