joshua tree cont'd...
Have you ever seen a nest of hatching caterpillars? None of us had, they were everywhere in Joshua Tree National Park. Check this out, there are DOZENS of them in there. It was kind of disgusting and fascinating at the same time.
As we drove towards the highest peak to watch the sunset, I spotted this and we stopped the car.
Can you see him over there? This is with the zoom. That's a BIG bobcat. He knew we were there. When we rolled down the window to take this photo, he turned his head our way, then went back to whatever it was he was doing up there. Can I tell you something? This was Andrew Henry's favorite part of the entire trip. This 5 minutes. Seeing the very large bobcat out in the wild made his weekend. It's not even the first time he's seen one, we saw a much smaller one while hiking in Sedona once. It's a mystery to me. I suppose that's good though.
My favorite part of Joshua Tree was just as the sun was setting. The light, the colors and the eventual dark stillness that came over this magical landscape.
It was just a tad bit romantic...
Look! That's me and Andrew Henry up there (photo taken by mom). Hope you enjoyed our visit to Joshua Tree.
