hate I missed you folks, I tried to make the pizza place, but was running an hour+ behind so I just headed west to met up with a buddy in the desert.

Saw my first Saguaros - pretty exciting



then we did some mineshaft exploring - even more exciting



found some interesting ghost-towns...




and sat around a campfire and watched a lot of this



Best Thanksgiving weekend in quite some time........

oh, and we rode moorsickles

Those bldgs. look familiar..

Saguaros are beautiful.

We were at the pizza joint at noon but it was closed even though my buddy (the owner) said it would be open.

Glad you had a good one, we did too!!

Spent a couple days in Slab City, fascinating yet depressing - lots of folks like me out there having a good time, surrounded by folks with no where else to go.
Trash is everywhere, making it even more sad, but the place is shockingly amazing at the same time, lots of natural beauty, immersed in man-made ugliness.



Too bad the light show on Chocolate Mountain did not show up, it was a spectacle - this is what they do there






more bubbling geysers than I could count



and of course, more schoolies

seems like I remember decades as the time it took?
Shot some video inside too, maybe I will wok on that soon?

I much prefer the art project "East Jesus" in the rear - much cooler



ongoing project of multiple artists means there might be something for everyone

Just outside Joshua Tree in a dry lakebed.....
can you see the bus?




Look closer




looking back at the peak in the distance (the big one) does not seem that far away?



another awesome sunset, and I have not even passed thru the gate of the park yet

unfortunately the night sky I have been waiting for has eluded me for months.

Right now I believe I am too close to LA, or there is too much moisture to see anything but "average" sky, sadly.

The first moment I see the spectacle I am looking for, you will see it too

A windy day near LA always makes for a pretty sunset where the smog and dust kicked up by the winds make for an unreal pink orange sunset.
