January 11, 2013 - Today we drove down to Palm Springs to see some more of the Indian Canyons and we were finally prepared to go hiking, since we now own a small backpack.  It started out fairly cool but the temperatures quickly warmed up as the morning went on.  Today's segment was through the Palm Canyon area.  There are four canyons owned and operated by the Agua Caliente Indians: the Tahquitz, Palm, Andreas and the Murray Canyons. We have now seen three of the four.  All four are listed in the National Register of Historic Places and Palm Canyon is considered the world's largest California Fan Palm Oasis.

After a one mile trail meandering along the canyon floor, we moved up to a two mile trail along the ridge of the canyon.

The Trading Post, operated by the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, is the building located where the canyon ends.

The hummingbird feeders by the Trading Post drew the hummingbirds by the dozens.  The birds are so used to people that anyone can stand just a few feet away to watch and listen to their distinctive humming noise as they maneuver in to feed.
