Painted Canyon with Palo Verde Bloom Day 6

(Painted Canyon with Palo Verde bloom.)

Day 6 “On the Road” Box Canyon Road and lunch in Painted Canyon!

March 15th, 2014

We winded back to Box Canyon Road and decided to get off the main drag and into nearby Painted Canyon where we delighted in the warm dry air, filled with a fragrant breeze —- to lunch under the shade of a red-rock cliff shadow. Like many before us have noted, this hidden painted canyon filled with slots for hikers to delight in felt far more like Utah or Arizona with those pink walls than California.
