Oasis of Hope





If an oasis of fan palms around a water source is an oasis of hope in the desert, then what better place to have a Hike for Hope for breast cancer?

samhenderson and I hiked 5.9 miles through the desert from one fan palm oasis to what would have been stone pools if California would have had a decent "rainy season" this year. This was in the Indian Canyons of Palm Springs, which is located on the Agua Caliente Reservations Lands.

The benefit hike was a fundraiser for the City of Hope. Though I must admit I'm a bit sore, it was a lot of fun and I think I'm going to do it again next year.
