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.

New life from old
There's a burned area right across from Spring Crest, up on Highway 74. It burned a couple of years ago and I've been watching the regrowth. There was a lot of manzanita up there and it is slowly coming back. They get quite a bit of rain off the western slopes of the mountains up there, so the grass came back right away. Sometimes, if I have time, like today, I'll stop and take a few photos and observe it. Here are some of the photos I took today. Oh, and yes, thank you, Gaelyn. ALL went well with the horses! My vet is a short, wiry guy who can give them their shots in the blink of an eye. Poof! It's done. I didn't even realize he had done 3 of them! Sunni was a bit dramatic, and Scout, too, but all ended well and they all got a treat for their good behavior!
