Joshua trees in Joshua Tree NP.

It’s funny how long we had considered Joshua Tree to be a back-up plan for Red Rocks as opposed to being its own destination. I think it took two trips for us to really like place. Now we realize how special the area really is: uniquely beautiful landscape, fantastic granite and what the routes may lack in length they certainly make up for in quality and (in many cases) stoutness. We’d go more often if they allowed dogs or if Shirley got more work related trips down to southern California.
