I spent a few days camping at Borrego Springs -Palm Canyon Campground. On one of my hikes up Palm Canyon trail I noticed this electronic setup and was curious as to what it might be for. I have never really spent much time out that way, but it was a good trip and I look forward to returning. I've also enjoyed browsing this web site it's given me some ideas on places to go and things to see.

Don't recall specifically where it was as I was a little preoccupied with something else. I'm thinking about 2/3 the way up the basic trail to the palms, north side of the canyon, probably on the lower 1/4 of the hill side.


Thanks

First guess without the benefit of being there is some kind of atmospheric data logging device?

The truncated cone would contain satellite antenna (assuming it's pointing south). If the conduit leads to the creek probably a water flow sensor.

Ah! See I was exactly right........a water flow sensor measures water and..... water is part of the atmosphere. smile
