look closely. you can see 2 people climbingKONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

we pulled over and watched for awhile. i wonder if they knew that we could hear them. this lady was about half the way up. the guy above her and the lady on the ground were yelling, i mean encouraging, her to keep going. and telling her which rock to go for. we heard the lady say she wanted to come down a couple of times, but the others kept telling her to keep going. she finally did make it. nothing like a little peer pressure!KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

  1. I love the photos. Joshua Tree is a gem. I can’t wait to get there. You can never post too many photos. I am guilty of sharing a barrage of photos as well. People can always scroll right past. Enjoy the desert beauty.
