Desert Hiking in Anza Borrego: Palm Canyon.
A couple days ago I did a review on the campground at Anza Borrego Desert and how you can camp for free. To read that review, click here.
We also did an amazing hike when we were out there. I highly recommend doing this hike if you are in the area. I love the desert but I have never actually been on a desert hike where I came across a small river and a huge canyon of palm trees!
It was unbelievable to see all of this life flourishing under the hot desert sun. It was magical really. Around every corner there were different plants, animals and then finally the canyon filled with palm trees. It was really unique.
The hike was called the Palm Canyon Hike and was about 6.5 miles R/T. It is worth it but make sure you bring a ton of water with you! It can get very, very hot. Take extra precautions if you are headed out any time during the summer.
Here are some photos from the hike.

(This picture may not seem like much but remember these plants are blooming under the hot, arid desert sun – it’s amazing!)

(Water in the desert! What??!!)(The really cool palm canyon. Looks like it should be on a scene in Lost.)
