An sunrise hike  in Joshua Tree National Park was so awesome! The trail was full of
wildlife and at waters edge you could easily fine the Red Spotted

Low water, but great reflects on a sunrise hike 1/10/2016.

Homestead Homes or Urban Decay?


In 1938 congress pasted the "Baby Homestead Act"
allowing five acres of homestead sites.
 Water is a major need on the desert.

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.
