Inside The Joshua Tree

And other views. Please excuse the redundancy of the photos, I took too many of the same scenes, eh? I have finished all the jobs around the house except cleaning the nasty dust off of the relatively new ceiling fans.

Yucky dust just has to cling to the leading and trailing edges of the blades which are shaped very much like blades you would see on a Cessna general aviation aircraft. When cleaning the truck windscreen, I noticed that the right wiper blade was literally coming apart.

Strong sunshine and desert heat finally got to these original, six-year-old blades, which I replaced right away, thanks, Auto Zone! The funny thing is, in those six years, the wiper system has had very little use as it basically never rains here. Almost never. Some older cars and trucks have had the paint literally burnt off of them!

    • Hi Maria, thanks so much! I really like heading west out of the city and being in the middle of nowhere, it’s peaceful. Do you miss the desert?

    • So they don’t get scorched by the sun, nice! In a real sense, I could remove the wiper system and never need it down here, it’s just that dry but man oh man do we need the rain. 🌵

  1. Wonderful shots, John, as always. There I was, thinking that the Joshua Tree was an album by some ’80s Irish band… Can’t imagine somewhere where it hardly ever rains!

    • I agree, if I hadn’t lifted the blade… The desert is hard on batteries too. Heat kills cars here.
