My plan for today is to drive the 8 miles up Palm Canyon Road to the mountain I have shown you in my previous blog several times. From my vantage point in the camp, it looks like a jagged and treacherous mountain. I would hate to climb to the top.
Based on the internet descriptions, I just follow the dirt road all the way to the canyon entrance and take an easy walk about 1/2 mile into the canyon and I will see the palm trees. Don’t know when the best time to see them is, but I am heading out about 11 am for my journey.
The suspense is over. About a half mile up into the canyon, I look to the far canyon wall about 100 feet up and there they are in a crevice in the canyon wall – Palm trees.
I hit the timing just about right. The sun was just overhead displaying the palm trees beautifully. Don’t have to make two trips to catch them in the sunlight.
Yuma and I resting after our conquest. Doesn’t he look regal. He must have a pedigree, I just don’t know what it is. Anyone have an idea of what breed he is? Looks like a Redbone Coonhound to me. Not many coons in Arizona though.
See you later.
