It appears that Michelle Obama is still in the Coachella Valley. There is still a noticeable law enforcement presence in and outside Thunderbird Heights, the Rancho Mirage gated community known to have housed Michelle Obama and her husband, President Barack Obama in the past as well as an airplane that has been used during previous trips parked at Palm Springs International Airport.

Michelle Obama made the excursion to the Coachella Valley during a trip to Los Angeles for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games.

Riverside County Sheriff's Deputy Robyn Flores confirmed that her agency has assisted the California Highway Patrol when Michelle Obama arrived in the area Friday.

Residents have reported seeing a motorcade travelling through Rancho Mirage on Saturday night, yet specifics have not been made available by White House representatives for additional details on the First Lady's visit to the desert. It's her second in a little more than a year and could add more fuel to rumors that the power couple may ultimately move to the Coachella Valley.
