Joshua Tree '09

Johnny and Pippin made their third annual trip to Joshua Tree National Park this last March. The Joshua Tree desert was its usual strange self, especially after nightfall. There were even some yellow flowers blooming.

Since spring had arrived in Joshua Tree, we decided to seek out more flowers and trekked to see the blooms in California's Anzo-Borrega desert. Many different varieties and colors flowers were blooming; reds, purples, yellows, and whites dotted the landscape.

Also, while in the area, we managed to visit the Calico ghost town. The old mining town got its name from the multicolored rocks and dirt in the area. Its been turned into a bit of a tourist trap, but there are well preserved remains of numerous buildings and equipment.

That's all for today, until next time,
