We did a day trip in Joshua Tree and had a blissful time, like usual when we are in Joshua Tree. It is the epitome of family flow time for us: the boys play on rocks, I gush over all the color and texture of the dessert, and go nuts taking photos of lichen. I’m in love. Photographing lichen brings me so much joy. We packed sandwiches and hit up Pie for the People on the way out. Joshua Tree Coffee Company never disappoints either. What a great day!
I find it so interesting that while the dessert is a very harsh climate being in that environment seemed to really pull a softness out in me, maybe that that is just one of the many wonderful side effects of nature, maybe it is the dessert, or maybe that is the magic of Joshua Tree.
