Friday Finds — An Oasis

Indian Canyon Palm Springs

Tucked into the brown desert hills of Palm Springs is this delightful surprise: an oasis of greenery. The line of palms winds along the rock walls.You know right away the trees sprung up and grew here for one reason: water.

The creek is meager, but it’s enough. The palms have flourished here for decades.

We spent an enjoyable morning hiking up and down the creek, in the shade of these tall desert trees.

We’ve visited Palm Springs many times, and still we were completely surprised and delighted to find this oasis.

How about you? When have you happened on a place that took you by surprise?

Linking up with Friday Finds.

I am always amazed by these green spots in the desert. You’ve brought back memories from many years ago.

Just looking at the photos brings me warmth on this freezing Michigan morning! Such a stark contrast to the snow and bare trees.
