Here the jumbo rocks fun for climbing
And the whimsical Joshua trees, often referred to as Dr. Suess trees.
These by the way are iPhone photos automatically uploaded to the iPad, it was operator error, the iPhone was not on wifi. Pretty nice shots for a phone.
The Joshua Tree national park encompasses the intersection of the Mojave and Colorado deserts. The drive is easy and scenic taking about an hour with no stops. Had I thought ahead, a picnic lunch and a full day in the park would have been a great way to spend the day...
but I didn't and so we left mid day for a late lunch back in Palm Springs followed by and afternoon of beading. The jury is out on the results unfortunately. An error introduced early on and an uninspired color choice deems this piece not quite right, but I think there is potential and I'm not quite ready to abandon the idea. I do wish it were further along the design curve, but sometimes that is just how it goes.
