Photo Shoot: Joshua Tree National Park

Anne and I are riding our way out of the desert and trying to make it back to the coast. Yesterday we descended 3500 feet, down from the high desert, out of Joshua Tree National Park.  Here’s a little of what we did the last few days…

Joshua Trees have funny babies sprouting up from beneath them!

These are all just from my phone, so the photos are fairly limited. Just a little taste of the unspeakable beauty of Joshua Tree National Park!! It’s a hot spot for climbers and hikers in the region, and all of these photos are taken in the Mojave Desert (WHOA! I’ve only heard about that in the movies!). We’ve been at this coffee shop for about 3 hours  now, so I think it’s time to ride…
