Joshua Tree

April 10th, 2013

We escaped for a one-night camping trip to Joshua Tree National Park, just a couple hours out of LA. We hit the bloom time for the trees, found a campsite despite spring break crowds, and had a wonderful little hike in reasonable temps (it is the desert, after all, much more tolerable in spring!).

Doug and I took lots of pix. Sophia took her ukulele. Jeff took Theron’s spot in the car.

The skies were wild. We had sundogs and strange jet trails (contrails and what must have been jet paths through the clouds).

Interesting cactus and two types of blooming yucca, the Mojave yucca (Yucca schidigera ortgie) and the Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia). The Joshua trees don’t bloom every year, so it was especially fun to see so many. They require the Yucca moth to pollinate them.

We also saw many naturally levitated masses. This is our year for giant boulders, I guess.

Contrasting forests on our trip…
