Well, I've been a bit behind on the blog's, so here's one to keep you up to date on what's happening here at Trail Discovery & Palm Springs. We haven't received much rain since spring, so the desert is waiting inpatiently for the life-giving fuel. That being said, we are rewarded by some sublte fall colors, some plants that bloom now, others with changing & dying leaves. A few areas that demonstrate this include Joshua Tree Nat'l park, San Jacinto state park, & Whitewater Canyon Preserve. We offer tours to these locations mornings & afternoons. Temps can range from high's in the 80's, to 40's & 50'sF, (at 8,500 ft. elevation in the San Jacinto's). As the days get shorter, it's more important to keep spending time outdoors for much needed exercise, fresh air, sunshine, unplugging & unwinding. As clouds begin rolling in from the Pacific NW, hiking in the desert is my favorite time, (partly because we just finished another summer of triple-digit temps).
So, grab your hiking shoes, and come on out to the Palm Springs area, where we're blessed with over 250 miles of trails in amazing areas like Joshua Tree, our brand new Sand to Snow Scenic Monument, and the famous Pacific Crest trail.
We would love to show you one of the many outdoor wilderness areas we've been guiding people to for over 20 years. Check out the photos below, to get a taste of these locales. Feel free to give us a call, 760 413-1575, or drop us a line at email@example.com. We look forward to some great hiking this fall! Happy trails, Scott, chief guide
