Storm Clouds on the Mojave Desert

The storm clouds over the Mojave desert produce
awesome photos!

Joshua Tree National Park

The rock piles of JTNP  mixed with sunrise
clouds. I have come to enjoy those early morning hikes
before sunrise with the trusted LED Headlamp. Plan a
day hike in JTNP and photograph a  Mojave Desert print.


Monsoon season on the Mojave Desert

Keep the Canon camera by your side at all times.
Mid day walk in section "6", good hiking shoes are
advisable. Water is a must have!  I recommend using
a camelback, always carry water. 
Due to the vastness of desert I love the dividing
lines. Look closely and see the line of rain.
Sunset over Section "33", visit the Morongo Basin.
