Joshua Tree 2010

We decided to switch up the Thanksgiving holiday and go to Joshua Tree before it and then work on the holiday and the weekend. Joshua Tree was pretty uncrowded, pretty cold, and pretty. A nice little trip. We stayed the first night at White Tanks campground and then 2 nights at Jumbo Rocks campground. I shot slide film, undeveloped as of yet, and put my full Olympus 1030SW and 750UZ albums on Picasa. Highlights below...

snow in the San Gabriels
windy, rainy in the pass
rainbow when turning north on the 62
from our campsite at White Tanks

my favorite image from the trip
two moon shots

Sara watercoloring in the morning. Not sure which composition I like more.

self portrait
last of the Olympus 750UZ shots. Batteries died. Bummer, it takes better pics.
Evening of the 2nd day, the dots of light on the rock are headlamps of night climbers. It's even crazier than it seems cause it was really cold and windy. Well, in the high 30s and windy... cold for Cali.
frost in the morning...

from our Jumbo Rocks campsite

waves of frost on the roof

sun dog, very cool
i like the shadow

shot up my last roll of Kodachrome, and some ektachrome, as well as the digi crap.
JT + snowy mountains = happy Seth
lichen = happy S Bee
not sure what makes this guy happy
through this pass was a wonderland of rocks
Eriogonum turning the fields red. Really beautiful. Towards the end of the 3rd day. Sara is in the pic, painting the scene. Maybe we'll add a blogpost of her digi pics and watercolors from the trip.
