We planned our Joshua Tree visit to coincide with the sunset so we took a picnic dinner with us and headed out. I had no idea what to expect. Liz had mentioned it a couple of times as a place where her friend got married and where she wanted to have a photo shoot done of our linen clothing.
It was a long drive and I confess to thinking a couple of times, "this is it? What's all the fuss about?" We purchased a download audio tour that you play while driving through and it gives you all the details about landscape, vegetation, history, etc. It was great and very helpful.
The vegetation was fun. Those Joshua trees are something else! And we learned about the teddy bear cactus (not the kind of bear you can cuddle!) and so much more. About 2/3 of the way through the park you get to the large rocks and incredible vistas and then you see what the fuss is about. I took back everything I thought on the first 1/3 of the way through. I was trying to appreciate the nature for what it was but then the finale took my breath away!

We took the opportunity to photograph our new linen wrap dress here. We haven't finalized the pricing yet or the availability but we will have it in about 6 colours. It certainly kept her cool on this hot day.
Next up...come check out the zoo with us!
