So I wanted to share this stunningly beautiful part of California with you where I was a few days ago: Indian Canyons in Palm Springs. It is made up of Palm, Andreas and Murray Canyons, which are full of rocky gorges and formations, natural date palms, streams, and lots of amazing wildlife and natural plants and shrubs. I really fell in love with it- and in fact, I can’t wait to go back!
The land is sacred and was once inhabited by the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Indians. Because of the abundant water supply and fertile land, they lived off the land by growing crops of melons, squash, bans and corn, gathered plants, practiced natural medicine, and wove baskets. They lived in complete harmony with the land and had complete respect for the earth.
I could definitely feel the spirit of the Cahuilla while I was there- who thrived there for so many years. It is such a spiritual, beautiful place for hiking, meditating, and wildlife-watching. I’m so glad there are sacred places like this that are preserved.
Whenever I see such beautiful scenery, I get inspired to make more recipes with exotic fruits!
In love and natural health,
