Palm Canyon

Just to the south of Palm Springs, California is Indian Canyons. The main canyon though the park is Palm Canyon. One drives through the toll house and up to the trading post. This is the view to the north of the parking long. I was particularly interested in this canyon face.

There is a quick hike down to the canyon floor and then you are in the oasis. This is the largest group of California Fan Palms in the state.

Looking back north, the view is fantastic.

Along this trail, I met yesterday’s Phainopepla.

Ah, back in the day when we were teenagers it was all wilderness. Just hike in. No Indians, toll house, trading post, casinos, nothing.

I'm always amazed at these little desert oasis and green palms in the middle of the desert! Great photos.

Oh, yes...hubby used to ditch high school and go play there! Also, Tahquitz Canyon was a great spot for the youngsters! We've only hiked down there once...guess it is on our "to do" list again for this spring. Lovely photos!
