Joshua Tree - Pt 1
Some friends and I went to Joshua Tree National Park for the weekend for a bit of camping, a little sightseeing, and a whole lotta fun.

Queen's Valley gold mine. If you look across the gorge you can vaguely see some abandoned mining equipment

...such as this cyanide tank people have been using as target practice from across the gorge. Mmm rust halo

I really miss Joshua Tree. The last time I camped there was 2001.

I remember seeing this rocky hill that looked pretty small from camp, but when I got to the top of it and looked down at our camp site I saw it was just a tiny speck. And it was a lot harder coming down as it was going up.

I need to get up that way again sometime soon.

luckily everywhere I've gone lately has been within an hour and a half of my house :3 I figure eventually I'll run out of local places

Those rocks are quite easy to scramble atop!

Thank you for posting such lovely photos, it really brought back good memories. I hope to get back out there soon, it's going on over 2 years now.

Mexico was awesome, returned almost an hour ago....too bad the coffee I drank to stay awake hasn't worn off yet. :P

Hey cool, is that a drywall building? I'm surprised it's still standing without someone to maintain it.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: October 13th, 2008 04:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
naw its like a stone and mortar building. Very sturdy in general but not good for earthquakes.

I don't know why, but Joshua trees kind of creep me out. They have an eerie beauty. Maybe it's because Matt's mom said that people who got lost in the desert would start to hallucinate and think they were people, since their branches sort of look like arms.

I would have guessed that to be the case with Saguaro cacti although that would make sense of joshua trees.

I got your email, I'm not sure when we're going camping again but why not come up for a day visit just to hang out in the meantime? :)
aurorawolf From: aurorawolf Date: October 14th, 2008 03:18 am (UTC) (Link)
I've never seen a Saguaro cactus in the wild, but I wanted to while we were in Arizona. Unfortunately we stayed pretty far north. Maybe some day.

Yes, definitely wanna come up and hang out. Got plans this weekend?

Well, was gonna get some work done and Saturday I have to make a wood run with a friend and make use of his truck to haul some firewood back to my house, but other than that I'm open fri-sun. Wanna tour?
aurorawolf From: aurorawolf Date: October 14th, 2008 03:32 am (UTC) (Link)
It'd be fun. :) I'll talk to Matt and see if we could plan something maybe Sunday.

Hah! That sunglasses picture turned out really well!

Though, all of them did. I look forward to seeing the rest.
