I sometimes think of traveling in the United States as being a bit generic. I think of everyone watching the same television shows, eating at the same chain restaurants and watching the same blockbuster Hollywood releases. It seems like you could turn on the radio in most parts of the country and hear the same basic playlists played by DJ’s that have similar sounding voices. Sometimes I think Am... Read Full Entry

If you can't beat 'em
yep...join 'em! How lucky are you to pitch your digs just outside Joshua Tree N.P. No excuse for not getting cracker shots as the above testifies. Don't have too good a time...unless you are looking for heaps of TB neighbours!

Joshua Tree Sunset

Perfect heaven!
Your tales and photos make me massively homesick for my beloved Southwest, having spent many summers in Taos and Santa Fe. This photo perfectly captures the beingness and presence of the rocks and trees of Joshua Tree, where I spent my 40th birthday. As you said, many living off the grid and open to possibilities, and wide-open skies painted in bright colors. And how lucky to catch the quaking aspens in their fall golds. What an excellent trip!

Thanks, Tara!
We enjoyed Taos as much as anywhere we have been in the last few years. Every sunset was prettier than the last and such a diverse group of people for such a small town. A real international feeling in a small place. Joshua Tree is similar, but also very different. So far, so good here. Thanks for reading!!!

In love with your photographs!!
Wow those fotos are stunning! The colors of the clouds and the unique rocks offer their own form of art. I agree that sometimes we underestimate the beauty found in the US. We may have to go out of our way to find it, but its there! -Jennifer

Thanks!
This is a very beautiful area of the country, so the hardest thing about taking pictures here is deciding which ones to keep! Thanks for the nice compliment.

You can find this is the Jumbo Rocks camping area if you look. I don't remember the number of the campsite that it is near. You might be able to find it on the internet. It makes a good picture.
