Indian Canyons is a high desert area that is located near Palm Springs. The land is owned by the Agua Caliente Indians. A hike reveals the Washingtonian Palms in oasis settings. The fronds of the Washingtonians do not fall off and form a long skirt around the base of the trees.
Our guide describes how this palm has been bent by strong winds.
Lynn learned that this sign meant business when she spotted a rattler on our hike. The large lizard on the right is common to this area.
