Old cabin ~ Windows and Doors~January 14, 2013
This old cabin can be found as you travel the road to the Palm Springs Indian canyons. It only costs $9.00 to enter the canyons and there are two major ones there: Andreas Canyon, where you can hike a 1 mile loop, and which has beautiful sycamore and cottonwood trees as well as palm trees. It also has interesting geological rocks because it sits on a fault line. The second canyon, at the end of the road, is Murray Canyon. Murray Canyon has a palm tree oasis down in the bottom of it and it also has the ranger station/gift shop/refreshment stop (which is handy during the summer). Morning is a great time to visit these canyons (they open at 8:00 a.m.). We arrived in the afternoon, about 4:00. I took these photos going up into the canyon and again back down. Here is a link to more info about these amazing canyons: http://indian-canyons.com/ Anyway, I was intrigued by this old cabin, its doors, and lack of windows!
