Oasis in the Desert

Who knew that there was an oasis in the middle of the Morongo Valley, alright, really to one side. The original settlers of the valley built their original homestead up to one the canyons. Up the canyon are several natural ponds connected by streams. I was surprised by the humidity in the air and by how cool it was. The only problem with this oasis is that mosquitoes love it too.

Marsh land in the desert?!



Wild Iris.







We were told that the water is deep enough to jump off of the swing. There is also some good fishing in these ponds.
