Julie hiking in the wind
We did a late afternoon hike near Palm Desert. It was windy!
The Pushawalla Palms hike is deceptive. The hills and terrain are mostly desolate and dusty looking. But there’s a promise of an oasis at the destination and the payoff is high.
Palms in the canyon
There are these clusters of California fan palms nestled in the canyons and along the hiking ridge. Reminded me of the palm canyon in Kofa Wilderness.
Ussie amongst the palms
It was a five mile loop, challenging at times only because of the wind. Worth the time and effort… be patient for the payoff.
