Palm Canyon - Palm Springs, CA - Amazing

An oasis in the desert. Have you ever walked along a stream of sparkling water, lined by giant palm trees? In a canyon? The air smelling of dates? In the middle of the desert?

I did, this week in Palm Springs, California. At Indian Canyons. Amazing. Memorable.

This place sits on the Agua Caliente Indian reservation. It is worth the $8/person entry fee. Palm Canyon is 15 miles long.They have several hiking trails from easy to challenging, along with ranger-led interpretive hikes. I can't wait to return here and to visit nearby Andreas Canyon and Murray Canyon. I highly, highly recommend you add this to your list of places to visit if you are out in the area.

We had to cross the stream for our hike. Very cold water!

It is early for flowers. This is the only flower I saw on our hike.
