"Rattle snakes!" Wildlife Tip by Gimletup

Wildlife, Palm Springs: 3 reviews and 5 photos

  Chollas, Tahquitz Canyon
by Gimletup

Be cautious of snakes while hiking. Although the desert is gorgeous and the hiking supreme in the Canyons, there are snakes. I nearly stepped on a rattler that was sunbathing on a rock. They are quite camoflaged and quite poisonous. Also be sure to take plenty of water, but you knew that...
