Westin Rancho Mirage: Up, Up & Away

— WESTIN RANCHO MIRAGE GOLF RESORT & SPA — Hot air balloons from morning till night.

I joined in the celebration of Westin Rancho Mirage Golf Resort and Spa‘s Grand Re-opening after an $18-million remodel that has touched every part of the stunning oasis. Every room, every amenity, even the landscaping, has undergone renovation.

During my time in the Palm Springs area, a hot air balloon festival was in town. They were a part of the Westin celebrations. It made me giddy just being so close to the floating giants.

Balloons performed a ‘balloon glow’ for the stage backdrop during Grooves @ The Westin. The jazz concert premiered the outdoor concert venue – The Backyard.

The following morning the balloons saluted sunrise by launching from the golf course and floating away toward the sun.

I’m working on a scout report for the Westin that will be published by Wander With Wonder in 2022. Meanwhile, enjoy these photos of my favorite new form of transportation – hot air balloons.
