Hidden Valley

So... It's been a while since I've put any love into this old blog. Seriously, It's been a beautiful summer in Southern California. I've been basking in the sunshine and ignoring my computer.
That said, here is a peek into the summers revelry...

This Past weekend My best Galls and I set up camp at Joshua Tree National Park. With it's void of desert sky, egg-like boulders and sparse linear trees, Hidden Valley on the north west corner of the park, looks like a Surrealist painting come to life. We picked a spot high up in an outcropping of rocks (hidden valley) and built ourselves a comfy eagles nest of pillows and an old futon mattress and camped under the full moon.

We spent the day scrambling over bolder piles and basking in the sun. On the way out of town we hit Pappy and Harriet's. This ghost town is a former western film set turned barbecue restaurant and honky-tonk music hall, were over 50 classic western were filmed through out the 40's and 50's.

What fun to get away to this magical place with your best friends. I can picture you playing eagles in your nest under the moonlight, among the sculptural boulders and witch trees.

Thanks for sharing the fun with us. Great photo's!

Thanks Mama. I vividly imagine your free spirit in this place... skipping from rock to rock, reaching your hands up to the sky, trying to do a headstand (even though the doctor told you not to!)

Lovely image to aspire to. I hope to soon be able to raise my hands high... once again be free and fearless. To be able to skip on rocks.

In my spirit I can soar, In my body, I need to heal some more!

Your turn to delight in headstands!
