Photo taken looking west up the Murray Canyon Creek from the Palm Springs Indian Canyons Road. While this stream is not photogenic, being there in person it is beautiful. Birds tweeting in the desert willows, mesquite and acacia, and the sound of the stream and the sound of the wind and the silence of the canyons make this a beautiful spot. The bed of this stream has been significantly changed since the canyon flooding after the recent mountain fire, but not nearly as changed as the West Fork Canyon stream bed further up the road.
