I didn't take any pictures at the nut farm, but in addition to some tasty jams & other goodies, we picked up this cute piece of art for our house:
After finishing at the farm, we headed over to hike the canyon, which is nearby. I really enjoyed this hike, even though we didn't get to stay for very long. The views are absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately, I didn't take into account the fact that the trail allows for horseback riding, which means there was a lot of horse dung and consequently a lot of flies. If we'd brought hats, it wouldn't have been a problem, but we forgot hats, so the flies were quite annoying, especially for my short-haired husband.
Here are a few shots from the hike:

As I said, I really enjoyed the hike & was disappointed that we had to cut it short. I would definitely like to go back, but it will have to wait until the Fall. Due to its location deeper in the desert, it gets quite a bit hotter than where I live. In fact, the park is closed to hiking in August.
