Back at the parking area of the Palm Canyon we remembered that John, the wonderful docent of the Palm Springs Visitor's Center, had mentioned a short, very very short, hike to a waterfall. Less than 400 feet from the Trading Post, and, we are off - -
Here is our first view, about the middle of the photo, is the fall, tucked in behind the massive rocks.
Following the path even further, closer and closer, right through that opening, surrounded by massive rocks:
|(And, yes, mmm, we did climb up there.|
Man went all the way through, I climbed up
on the rocks. Was easy getting up,
getting down was a bit more interesting! Eh?)
And, that is the amazing finale' for this fabulous day of hiking in the Indian Canyons.
For those who remember my strong reaction to the Palm Springs Tram, I offer this little "bridge" we had to traverse to get to this water fall. After the tram, I did not even quiver, or snivel, I just marched right across, OK, slow deliberate steps, but over I went (and, of course, back again!)
|We did not officially measure the 'bridge',|
guessing the part you could actually walk
on was about 12 inches wide.
And, thankfully, not too far UP! LOL
