Next we drove the short distance to Palm Canyon. Standing beneath towering nearly-Redwood-size trees we learned we were in the largest natural grove of palm trees in the world – a grove over 2000 years old. Fifteen miles long, the canyon, with its lush rich palms, winds up into the mountains as far as one can see. A footpath leads to a stream near the trading post where dozens of hummingbirds swarmed a feeder. While enjoying our picnic at one of the tables beneath the monstrous trees we became awed by the beauty and wondered why this otherworldly place was rarely mentioned when Palm Springs was discussed.
