Gallery: Joshua Tree National Park, CA - Day 4 / 2010

Gallery (40 images): California 2010 / Day 4

After leaving Anza-Borrego in the morning, on the way north to Twentynine Palms I stopped at the side of the road a few times to photograph some nice patches of wildflowers. After a bit of grocery shopping, and a much needed shower, it was back into Joshua Tree National Park for an afternoon and evening of hiking around the park. Compared to Anza-Borrego, there was virtually nothing blooming in Joshua Tree yet, probably a bit too early in the year or perhaps there hadn't been enough rains further north? The last two photos in the gallery, one of which is the above image, really shows some of the park's vistas nicely, with the piles of huge weathered boulders and vast numbers of Joshua trees visible when you open the larger version of the images. There's something almost otherworldly to those views...

Gallery: A Beautiful Sunday

A week ago, we had a gorgeous weekend and I took advantage of what might have been the last nice weekend in a long while to go out and hike around near Alouette Lake and then later on, closer to sunset, by Pitt Lake. No lens tests, no reviews, just some photos on a beautiful, crisp, sunny fall day...
