Watch for the tubular red flowers of the chuparosa, which grow on a gray-green mound-shaped bush. Conserving energy in the arid climate, chuparosa lack leaves during much of the year, but the bright flowers often bloom profusely after rains. The Spanish word chupar means “to suck,” which is what hummingbirds do to the nectar-filled flowers. With their food source, nectar, present in abundance, hummingbirds are plentiful. In the dense quiet of a desert-canyon hike, listen for the call of the purple-crowned Costa’s hummer.
ELEVATION PROFILES Corresponding directly to the trail map, each hike contains a detailed elevation profile. The elevation profile provides a quick look at the trail from the side, enabling you to visualize how the trail rises and falls. Note the number of feet between each tick mark on the vertical axis (the height scale). To avoid making flat hikes look steep and steep hikes appear flat, appropriate height scales are used throughout the book to provide an accurate image of the hike’s climbing difficulty.
The boulders become bigger and more plentiful and as the well-defined trail ends, some rock hopping begins. A sycamore tree appears, and you’ll spot a few palms ahead in the ravine alongside more sycamores. The first palm grove is a good place to turn around if you’re averse to boulder hopping. 5 miles remain to reach the falls, which are a delight. As you hike around boulders and up over those that require some climbing, flat sections of trail reappear for short stretches. Pass through areas where water trickles, making its way down the canyon.
