a walk in Twentynine Palms--Part I

A few weeks back we visited my mother-in-law, Helen, over Mother's Day. During my morning walk, here are some of the things I saw...

(legs ready to go)

(a branch that looked like a snake)

(desert dandelions)

(an anthill)

(the end of the road)

cholla garden--Joshua Tree National Park

(May, 2010)

This is a surreal place... thousands of cholla cactus that grow on a plain in Joshua Tree National Park, like Alice in Wonderland falling into a desert rabbit hole.
