Went to SoCal to visit my parents and because of a freak snow storm in Seattle, the only flight Janine could get going south for several days was to fly to Palm Springs. I landed in Orange County, stopped off at my parents to say hi and headed to the desert to pick her up. We stayed with some friends that night in La Quinta but stopped off a Joshua Tree National Monument for a quick hike on the way back to SoCal. I used to camp here many years ago in Boy Scouts so it was a return to my old stompin’ grounds. The rocks haven’t changed much in forty years. Still one of the best collections of boulders thrown around by a supreme being playing dice or something.
