Indian Canyons

9 X 12", o/cp.  Finally getting around to blogging the last day of my three-day painting trip to Palm Springs and the surrounding desert.  This is from Indian Canyons, just three miles south of Palm Springs.  It's a wonderland of stunning rock formations and steep ravines.  There are miles of trails throughout this almost-untouched area of incredible beauty, sacred to the Agua Caliente Cahuilla tribe.  These views are toward Fern Canyon.  Palm Canyon Creek is in the foreground.

6" X 8", o/cp.  By the way, the seemingly infinite numbers of Washingtonia Fan Palm trees throughout Palm Springs and Palm Desert are indigenous.  They're the only palm tree that is indigenous to Southern California.
