Another hike in Anza-Borrego is the hike from the campground up Palm Canyon to the oasis.
The trail follows the stream up canyon. There was quite a bit of water in the upper portions. Down stream the thirsty gravel had left only puddles.
There was brittlebush and ocotillo in the lower, drier portions of the trail.
We were a little to early to see this Beavertail in bloom.
This Desert Mallow was blooming though.
Some lovely cascades as we approach the end.
And then the palm oasis. The skirts of old leaves protect the trunk from the harsh summer heat. It was an easy hike except for some places where the trail and bridge had been washed out.
