random shots--29 Palms
These photos were taken in Twentynine Palms on Thanksgiving Day 2007. From the top: a cholla cactus in the Joshua Tree National Park Visitors Center cactus garden; signs on the Twentynine Palms Highway (Highway 62) welcoming Marines home for the holiday; a sculpture at the Visitor's Center; a message on the side of an empty building.
Desert trivia: the Marine Corps Air/Ground Combat Center in 29 Palms is the largest in the world in terms of land mass--about the size of Rhode Island.
