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.

Just catching up!
I headed up the hill yesterday because I wanted to drive up to the horse boarding ranch and give my herd an extra meal. It was 18 degrees up there Friday morning, their water troughs were frozen over, and it was windy. First, however, I headed out to Thousand Palms Canyon Road to take some photos of the wash over there. I haven't been out that way for some time! I get so darned busy with everything...sigh... I came home, ate lunch, took a short nap, and headed up toward Santa Rosa mountain. I was anxious to see how much snow they got up in Pinyon. What? What's this FROZEN white stuff? It was HAIL. Lots of hail was still on the ground yesterday afternoon! I didn't see any snow, except at the higher elevations, but there was hail everywhere!
