Joshua Tree. A winter weekend.- In the expanse of other world, the collision of the Colorado and Mojave deserts, exceptions, here are commonplace. Harsh conditions, gradually pushing out comfort and easy survival, it is the exceptions who inherent the land. Sure, this national park has captured the imagination of so many, but my expectations were initially low. Joshua trees, rocks, sky, and cholla, create an intense synergy together.
There is a visual feast every place your eye looks. The vistas alone are breathtaking. We landed here after a rain, vivacious drab colors in greys, pinks, straw yellows.
Wild places like this can feel forgotten. But Joshua Tree is hardly forgotten. The little gems to eat at and play at are as warm and inviting as the desert is harsh. Charmed. Totally and completely.
I've often known that the in-between places- the places where things (concepts, ideas, cultures..) overlap are often the most interesting. This place is just that. I never thought I could love California more. But there you go.
I think I am possibly becoming a cactus. XOXO
