ABOUT THE COVER: Those fancy desert watering holes known as swimming pools are a mecca to residents and visitors year-round, particularly during the summer months when temperatures soar. Our model keeps her cool in one of the 4,952 pools in the city of Palm Springs. Photographer J. Richard Forbes shot the cover photo while lying on his back at the bottom of the pool.
