Wild Flowers of Joshua Tree National Park
We spent last weekend enjoying the beautiful Mojave desert. Joshua Tree is blooming with so many different varieties of wild flowers right now, it was breath taking. The weather was perfect, warm with a cool breeze. National Parks offer these great night time ranger talks, so we attended two while visiting the park. We went one night and the ranger informed us there would not be a talk that night, instead we went on a night hike. No flash lights were allowed. It was so much fun. We learned so many new things, tapping into our senses, and enjoying the stillness and quite of the night. I can now find the north star in the sky.
