Joshua Tree: Day One
Barry turned 40 last month among the cacti, rocks, and blue skies of Joshua Tree National Park. We made an extra long weekend of his birthday and backpacked through several different corners of the park to celebrate. The first day we hiked Boy Scout Trail to a site where we set up camp, watched the moon rise, and marveled at the beauty of this part of the world that is so different than where we live. Not bad to be in the middle of a sunny, dry desert in the middle of February (at least when you call Portland home).
