A Moderate Palm Canyon Hike at the Borrego Desert

This is an excellent example of tectonic plate thrusts in Anza Borrego State Park, and you will find this scene shortly after passing the trailhead for the Palm Canyon Hike. It's a 3-mile hike roundtrip. But much of it is not on a flat sandy path. The path is narrow in some places. In others, it vanishes, forcing you to look for footprints on smooth stone to find your way.

You will also, if you are lucky like we were, spot Big Horn sheep on the ridges. Entire families of Big Horn sheep peeking down at you. Plus we saw costa hummingbirds and more sphinx moth caterpillars, along with a wide assortment of beautiful desert wildflowers in bloom for as far as the eye can see.

Please feel free to read more in my personal blog and see about 20 photos at this link: Photos of Palm Canyon Hike at Anza Borrego.

About Agents Representing Family Members

Working with agents who try to represent family members can be somewhat of a pain-in-the-you-know-what for a Sacramento listing agent. Why just a few days ago, I had a family member call and ask to see a listing. He acknowledged that he had an… more
Who Goes Out for a Good Steak Anymore?

Except for the steak dinner a friend invited me to in Kona a while back, I have not readily thought of going out for a steak. It used to be a craving but I have lessened my intake of red meat for years. Not on purpose, it just sort of happened. For… more
Which GPS Do REALTORS Use for Navigation?

There is some kind of deal with my Mercedes where I get free GPS for 3 years, and then I think they try to find a way to charge for it. Everybody seeks subscription-based services today so they can charge you over and over. You own nothing. You… more
