He drove his car down the hill to Borrego Palm Canyon and we started our trek. We hoped to see bighorn sheep but weren't lucky enough to this time. Did have a really nice hike.
It is amazing how much water is up there still and wonderful to see the only native California palm in its original habitat, Washingtonia filifera.
We headed back out to the slot canyon for some more shots, with tripods this time.
Need to work on them and see what I got, didn't really have time in this morning's rush.
Might be right.
Afterwards we headed over to the Tamarisk Grove.
Reports of a long eared owl on my birding forum this week.
Thankfully my equipment was spared and my body not too badly bruised. Nothing hurt much but my pride.
We stopped at Lake Henshaw for a beer and a coke on the way home. A very satisfying day!
