joshua tree national park

I was going through some images from our trip out west last Fall and, thought I would share these taken at Joshua Tree National Park. 

We entered the park just east of Indio, CA, on the south side. Honestly, my first impression could be summed up like this, “So….. why is this a national park?”

After a short time, I changed my mind. The splendor and beauty of the stark, rugged, “not-of-this-planet” terrain became apparent, and, I was amazed at the minimalist, harsh, glory all around me.

If you are able, it would definitely be worth the trip. Thanks for stopping by.

and so Christmas day 2017 ends

Goodbye Christmas Day 2017. It was wonderful to be with family and be reminded of how precious it is to care and support each other. It brought joy to my heart to think about friends near and far and be reminded of how my life has been surrounded with so much love and encouragement.  God bless you. Thanks, Christmas Day 2017, for a wonderful day.
