Joshua Tree in the Desert

Yesterday we drove through part of Joshua Trees National Monument. There are many turn-offs where you can go on little hikes and nature walks. Our favorite one was Hidden Valley. This area has many rock piles and interesting rock formations made of monzogranite - a pink colored granite.

I had some problems with this painting, but I'm sharing it anyway. It is pastel on a medium blue paper - really too dark and too blue. The earth is really warmer in color. Oh, well.

I used to drive my children to Fallon for weekends with their grandparents and on the way passed several displays of Joshua Trees. My son Josh, was incensed. I still love them.
