Against The Wind

Day Twenty Seven
Today I went to Horseshoe Palms in the Coachella Valley Nature Preserve.  The trail starts off at the same trailhead that goes to both Hidden Palms and Pushawalla Palms.  Horseshoe Palms is in the middle of those two.

This sign is in the wrong place.  The wind blew it down and someone carried it here.

The trail gets up on the ridge and is very exposed to the wind.

Horseshoe Palms glistening in the sun. 

Hikers high on the ridge headed for Pushawalla Palms.

This parking lot was empty when I left.

Looking down the ridge toward the Wilhelm Grove at the 1000 Palms Oasis

It was WINDY on the ridge to the Palms and COLD.  OK, cold for here.  It was probably in the 50s.  I'll be back soon when I have time to make it all the way to Pushawalla Palms.  Hopefully, without the wind.
