Back from the Desert

Although we were too early to see the wildflowers in full bloom, the sky in Joshua Tree did it's part to showcase the desert colors.

Trees were climbed at the Oasis of Mara at 29 Palms Inn.

A shantyboat with no drifting except where your mind roams.

Rocks were explored within Joshua Tree National Park. The boys and I enjoyed some time with my parents and my brother from Alaska who is town for a brief visit. He and I have been coming to Joshua Tree to camp since we were kids. This was the first time for him and my parents to stay at the Inn. Such a delight for everyone.


  1. Sounds like a good time. The desert is really nice (Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Anza Borego) in the springtime. I once went on a camping trip to these deserts the last week of March, first week of April. It was lovely. your post reminds me of what a lovely place the desert can be.

  2. I enjoy the desert. I find it centering. Spring in the desert is truly magical. If you head out to the area, I highly recommend a stop at 29 Palms Inn. Drinks at dusk highly recommended.
