Rancho Mirage The River mall (#5162)
A slight interruption to my other postings. In the news this week in the Coachella Valley was that The River mall is having some trouble attracting customers. Here's part of what you see of the River when you pass it on CA-111, a large expanse of water serving only a scenic purpose -- in the desert. That's why I have never considered using the mall. Even before we were in a drought I felt that this type of water use was not a responsible use for the region. All of the ponds appear to be relatively shallow, thus it would seem feasible to convert this to rock and desert landscaping -- though they would have to change the name of the mall.
