President Obama makes sixth trip to the desert, golfs

President Barack Obama returned to the Coachella Valley on Friday in preparation for a two-day summit with Southeastern Asian leaders that begins on Monday.

Before touching down at Palm Springs International Airport from Los Angeles, Air Force One diverted slightly to fly over part of the nearly 1.8 million acres of desert and mountains that Obama designated as three national monuments on Friday.

The first US-ASEAN summit of its kind hosted by the United States began Monday afternoon with President Obama welcoming leaders from 10 Southeast Asian nations to Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage.

Meanwhile, the numbers of protesters outside the venue thinned considerably from the hundreds who demonstrated earlier in the day.

The president's latest visit to the Palm Springs area — his sixth in three years — began Friday. What was envisioned as a quiet golfing weekend before the summit was transformed by the unexpected death of a Supreme Court justice. Antonin Scalia was found dead at a Texas Ranch on Saturday.

Below is a running blog on the president's visit to the desert as events unfold.

— President Barack Obama hosts Southeast Asian leaders at an unprecedented summit in California starting Monday as he looks to deepen ties with the region’s fast-growing economies. But a nation not invited — neighboring power China — will be the proverbial elephant in the room as the leaders grapple with sensitive territorial disputes.

As part of Obama’s so-called pivot in U.S. foreign policy toward the Asia-Pacific, he has made a point of traveling to the region each fall to meet with the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN.

Now, Obama is inviting ASEAN leaders to the U.S., and to the same venue where he hosted China’s President Xi Jinping in 2013. U.S. officials say the two-day summit at the Sunnylands estate is not directed against China, a strategic rival of the U.S. But the military might and economic clout of the rising Asian power is likely to loom over their discussions.

Some things to know about the summit:
