PRLog - Feb. 27, 2012 - SAN DIEGO -- Linda M Pyle, author of Peaks, Palms, and Picnics: Day Journeys in the Mountains & Deserts of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley, is counting the days until the March 3rd Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival. “This event is one of my favorites because the guided hikes, creative kid activities, photography and landscaping workshops, artist showings, music, wine and beer garden make it a fun celebration of that miracle we call the wildflower.”

While Pyle will be busy signing books at the Santa Rosa Visitor Center, she has some advice for visitors: “Wear good walking shoes and put on plenty of sunscreen. Water and food will be available for purchase. Certified guides will lead moderate hikes along the Randall Henderson Trail and there is a short nature walk around the visitor center.”

Pyle’s book, Peaks, Palms & Picnics explains where to go for a great hike while sharing compelling stories about the sights and sounds along the trails. The inclusion of picnic recipes, like Walnut Carob Fudge Brownies and Stuffed Medjool Dates, is a delicious bonus. Pyle notes, “My books are not just about getting a hike done. They are about connecting with family and friends while getting a deeper understanding of nature.”  She adds that it was her journeys in the desert that led her to become a writer. Take a break from the flowers and sunshine to stop by her table inside the big white tent for a free hiking tip sheet.
