The splendor of the Joshua tree
is as unique and identifiable
to the Mohave Desert
as the majestic saguaro cactus
is to the Sonoran Desert.

Escaping From The Vegas Strip   1 comment

I came to the canyon seeking an escape

from the manmade strip of bright lights.

Decade old Scenic wildfire still fenced-off.

Vegas influenced exhibits at the visitors

center providing impressive vistas of

the northern Mojave Desert.

Hiking the rocks and desert floor

ending the day on the 13 mile Scenic Drive.

Collecting my winning in nature’s house

the freeway takes me back 

to where the house rules,

I lose.
