The path was pretty good, most of the way, a lot of palms and rocks came down the canyon is a flash flood about ten years ago.
A couple of times we had to cross the creek on logs or stones.
We found this Datura growing on the side of a bank, I have grown them at home,I was neat to see one in it's natural habitat.
The palm grove was amazing, it was quite cool inside, a lot of palms were lost in the flood, but there are lot's of baby palms growing ing the creek bed.
On the way back down the canyon we took an alternate route, I was so happy to find this prickly pear in bloom. It's the first cactus I have seen in bloom on this desert.
I started this blog yesterday (Wed) but for some reason the pictures wouldn't load. All of a sudden it has got
windy this morning, I hope it doesn't blow all day, at least it isn't cold . They are forecasting record breaking cold temp. for the island, it won't do the daffodils and crocus any good.
