Friday, February 26, 2016

Today, we drove to the northern part of the Joshua Tree N.P. to see the Joshua trees.

The park is split into two deserts.  The southern half is the Colorado Desert and the northern half is the Mojave Desert.

The other beautiful feature of the northern part of the park is the large number of rock formations.  Large rock formations.

The weather was just perfect today for a drive through the park.  Low 80’s with a slight breeze and plenty of blue skies.

See you later.

    1. The rock formations do make pretty photos. Had so many, it was hard to choose. Must be nice to live so near. I sometimes wonder what it would be like if my parents had stayed in San Bernadino after I was born. Hard to say I'm a native when I only lived here for three months. But, I am drawn to this area.
