Yeah, after a long drive of 10 hours yesterday, we are home! I slept like a log last night and woke up exhausted today!! And it's COLD here, with rain and hail and I've heard there's snow, but haven't seen it locally.
I tried blogging from hotels and they don't like uploading stuff for me, so I waited until I got home.
My January Dragon Dance socks saw a mine near Edwards AFB, and were finished just in time to sit by a cozy fire while in the San Jose area.
There are rarely pictures of me on our vacations, or they are horrible pictures. Kim got two of me that aren't too bad. We were at the top of the peak in JTNP (you could actually see the Salton Sea, it wasn't too smoggy) on Monday.
Ok, so last year I blogged here about the trip. And there are pictures of the smoggy valley. This year the pictures are much better!!
Towards Riverside and LA.
I think that is Palm Springs down there. We've never been down there, so I am just guessing.
Right above those peaks you can see the Salton Sea.
These were most of the flowers that we saw at Joshua Tree NP. In fact, this was at just one spot along the road, all of these flowers were within probably 100 feet.
This one I thought was eggs at first, but upon closer inspection, there is a gourd plant there.
