Kofa Mountains, Arizona
I first heard about Palm Canyon when I was living in Arizona in the mid 1970s. It’s the only place in Arizona where one can find California fan palm trees growing in their native habitat. I thought that would be worth a visit someday. About 45 years later I finally made it there. We camped just outside the mouth of the canyon one night and while there hiked the short trail up the canyon to see the palm trees way up in niches in a narrow side canyon. It was neat to (finally) see the palm trees but I was much more taken by the canyon itself as well as the whole Kofa mountain setting. The photos I took of the palm trees are not particularly worthy but the ones of the mountains were I think. This one is looking out the mouth of the canyon from up near the palm tree viewing area.
