Palm Canyon

Friday, January 22, 2016

After coffee and breakfast this morning, the whole crew headed up to Palm Canyon.  We intentionally waited until about 12:30, hoping to catch the palm trees in full sunlight.

Here is a view as we are driving east on Palm Canyon Road.  You can see the white line in the center of the photo running right up to the canyon entrance.

The trees are located about a half mile into the canyon in a crevice high on the canyon wall.  The sun only hits them for a short time during the day.

We were lucky and hit them at the perfect time.

After our long hike the dogs were pooped, so I helped them to rest.
