It has been a long time since I posted a Wordless Wednesday blog; since the spring of last year to be precise. I frequently used Wednesdays to showcase a gallery of colorful mementos, collected during our travels on water and on land, in an “almost wordless” fashion. The weekly Daily Post photo challenge acted as a theme. This week, I am joining those ranks once again.
Joshua trees can be found in the Mojave Desert part of the park, which is higher and cooler than the Colorado Desert section
The perfect Joshua tree 🙂
Free campsite for two nights
One of the hikes in the desert revealed old and abandoned automobiles
The theme is “beloved”, and I have chosen Joshua Tree National Park to be featured. Being in nature and taking a break from work with my beloved husband are precious to me. These photos were taken on a short trip to the desert over the last weekend of 2017.
Skull Rock is a very popular stop in the park
A few oases can be visited
Other interesting features carved into the rock over time by the elements
Boulders, cacti and Joshua trees define this desert landscape
The Cholla Cactus Garden holds an abundance of these ‘cuddly looking” cacti
Ocotillo cactus, which is not a true cactus, in the Colorado Desert
