Anza Borrego Desert State Park Palm Canyon Trail
Palm Canyon Oasis Trail in Winter
The Anza-Borrego desert is a nice place to visit in winter season, especially after a few rains. Endless flat desert full of cactus and rocky mountains are beautiful. One winter weekend my friend and I went there to hike the Palm Canyon Oasis Trail. It was a quiet day and only a few people were there to hike. Some part of the trail requires good balance and coordination. Climbing big rocks one after another to get to the other side could be a challenging task. Yet, it is well worth the challenge when you get to the soothing sound of a waterfall next to palm trees. This is the Palm Canyon Oasis. What a perfect place to take a break and have a lunch. It was a three-hour hike including lunch and video taking for us. I recommend good hiking boots, and a pair of gloves could be handy to grip rocks. Take a jacket, camera, and plenty of water. Oh, don’t forget a delicious lunch too!
