Southern California's low desert is an area of fascinating contrasts. Visitors here experience views of boulder-covered hills with purple mountain backdrops, crisp blue skies and dramatic red-hued sunsets, open desert plains splashed with purple and yellow wildflowers and championship golf courses, tall palm groves by roadside date stands and gourmet bistros and designer boutiques, and rural camping and hiking retreats, as well as celebrity hideaways and spas.
