We dropped about 4,000 feet within the first few miles of leaving Yosemite. A joshua tree. Pretty funky trees if you ask me. Sorry it's not the greatest picture I was trying to get a big one while driving. Most in this area were small and scrubby.
Wouldn't you like to live here?
A suprising Oasis here. Some resort or something. Not sure how popular that would be.
We drove through artist's drive and it was very pretty. I'm disapointed the pictures don't even show all the colors. There were browns, blues, greens, oranges and reds all striped here. You should google it. A very cool little detour off the main road.
The long road ahead of us...
I think our faces say it all in these pictures. It is hot, close, and uncomfortable. But pretty cool to say that we've been there and started out at 10,000 that morning.
I wouldn't want to drink the water their either.
