Some Joshua Trees are very tall and impressive, others are short and twisted while some are dead or dying. Joshua Trees are the long-living people of the Mojave Desert, capable of living for about 500 years. They grow only in this desert too.
Where the wonderful Bonnie Springs Ranch once stood at the end of Bonnie Springs Road, this is the view that greets you today. The attractions, restaurant, and more were located directly ahead. Now it’s dead. The sign that I blurred has contact numbers that nobody needs to have. The other photos were taken between the fence and Charleston Boulevard to the east of my location. I just love these beautiful Joshua trees!
Here’s a random selection of images from a 2019 ride to the open desert. I haven’t seen the donkeys recently.
This is a little medley of times and places in my life. The Pontiac sign is at my dad’s mancave in Michigan, the dog with the meme was taken in the driveway where I lived in Michigan. Both photos are several years old. The donkey photo and the Joshua tree photos are from around two years ago west of Las Vegas.
That groovy color swirl is actually the glass block window in my kitchen, who uses glass blocks these days? The photo of my backyard is about two years old as the African Sumac tree is still in the backyard. I despised that messy tree! There’s a Sago Palm there now. Time just keeps on rolling along, doesn’t it?
