Looking forward to going to Joshua Tree for the first time. Joshua Tree fits in the general category of truly amazing places I avoided until later in life because I used to be super snobby about crowds and “supposed to be great” places.
Now I seek those places out, cause you know what ? They are great.
I still dodge crowds, but I think of them more like weather – ya can’t let it hold ya back. And you know what ? Sometimes the rain can feel pretty good on your back and other people can feel pretty good on your soul too.
The timing is really great, a week of sun and warm temperatures. It’s the early stages of a the wild flower season (following a 3 year drought). Birds will be migrating and places where bodies of water belong will actually have water. The stars will be amazing.
I am especially looking forward to seeing Lupines like these – as I saw a ton of them in Iceland.
I am ready for general wild flower mayhem
And I am really looking forward to seeing some of this – actually – a ton of this!
