Moonflower Canyon

IMG_1750Very short hike up Moonflower Canyon located just off of the Colorado River.  A special treat at the end of the hike—a little pond reflecting the gnarled oak trees and fallen rocks from the nearby cliffs.  There really are moonflowers, but the trumpet shaped flower only opens in the dark.  A desert oasis.  Lots of rain the last couple of days and you can tell from the resulting humidity felt on our morning walk.  The humidity is nothing compared to the East Coast, but having any at all is  unexpected by us here in the desert.

  1. The humidity sure is a change from the desert. We have plenty of it here and it is a shock to our systems.
