While we were there, we learned about landscape and flower photography and used our newfound knowledge on a 1.5 mile hike into Palm Canyon to reach a 7-foot waterfall (wow). The sights witnessed during the hike made the waterfall rather anticlimactic, but we all tried to make the best of it by taking as many creative photos as we could. Unfortunately for me, upon review, I was dissatisfied with the quality of my pictures and deleted the majority of them. The ones you see posted here are a few of my favorites.
We actually had a really good time in the desert and plan to go again later this year.
