Today we did a seven and a quarter mile round trip hike to the mysterious Lost Palms Oasis. It was indeed lost. The hike was great, with plenty of ups and downs through washes, a few with narrow chutes. The picture is of San Jacinto Peak, 10,834 ft, looking west. Palm Springs is just below it, land of 100 golf courses.
Some nice man from Vancouver got carried away at the oasis. Yes, those are palm trees in the desert. It was breezy and about 60 degrees.
