West Fork Trail and Palm Canyon

My inventory of photos from my two night get-away in Palm Springs at the end of December is nearly endless! The photos in this gallery were taken after I hiked Andreas Canyon and then headed toward the Reservation Trading Post, where I had hoped to explore West Fork Trail and Palm Canyon. I ended up venturing onto just the very shortest trail to the falls, mostly because there were too many people. The area is beautiful and I’ll check it out on my next visit, only will plan to get there much earlier in the morning. ~SueBee

    Your first photo of the blacktop road reminded me of my childhood in Phoenix. That is EXACTLY the kind of sidestreet road I remember. On the hottest days, those roads would become so soft that we could leave our foot impressions in them. They’ve probably improved the formula by now.

        Hi, I tried to comment on your Switzer Falls post, but it requires name and email, unlike on most WP sites. Did you set it up that way?

      Those boulders lean on each other. One only hopes not to have an earthquake while squeezing underneath!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
