My adventures in and near Deep Canyon, located near Palm Desert, CA and the pinyon mountains near it.
Graceful dead tree up above Deep Canyon.

Cahuilla Vista~Our World Tuesday~011712
The Cahuilla Vista is one of the main overlooks above Deep Canyon and I stopped there Sunday morning, on my way up to the horse ranch. I needed to do my "homework" for my horsemanship lessons and I was anxious to get to the ranch. However, it was such a beautiful morning, that I pulled into the overlook and walked around. There is a self-guided trail with many display signs and sometime I'll have to go back and photograph them all. The Cahuilla Indians lived in this area and used Deep Canyon to travel from the mountains to the desert. They harvested, cooked, and ate the pinyon nuts from the trees all along the canyon. These photos show just a small portion of the overlook. It was fairly windy up there on Sunday (and cold), so I'll return another day! Our World Tuesday for January 17, 2012.
