Valley of Death





Wind blown dunes. 





Here's the view from the largest dune. We're probably close to 1 mile into the dune field at this point and walking in deep sand isn't easy. 



Our car is parked somewhere along that road in the distance. 



Badwater Basin, one of the lowest points on Earth. 



Taking a closer look at the salt out in the valley.



Artists Palette is a colorful combination of various types of minerals.

More Joshua Trees





A dead, yet beautiful tree, on a trail that's not often used by Joshua Tree tourists.

Joshua Trees


Yeah...it hurts. 



It's easy for me to become emotionally attached to some of the trees in this park. 





Joshua Tree National Park is one of the best places for rock climbing. This guy had plenty of equipment, whereas I usually just use my hands. Then again, I could never scale that peak! Posted by Picasa

From Beach to Desert


I tried to catch this bird feeding in the bay beside Seaport Village, but he was too fast. 




A cool looking bird near seal beach in La Jolla. We felt rushed the day before, so we came back for another look.






We pulled over to take a look at some cacti in a California State Park between San Diego and Palm Springs.  Posted by Picasa

Enjoying the view at La Jolla Cove. 



La Jolla beach, San Diego. 




I can't believe this is December. 



Sunset and waves at La Jolla Beach. 



The awesomeness that is La Jolla.
