Joshua Trees at Dusk

We stayed at Joshua Tree National Park for 2 1/2 days and took more photos there than any other place. I’ve already posted some panoramas and videos. Below is a series I did of silhouetted joshua trees.

Phantastes Underground

First off, before even looking at these images go order yourself a copy of George MacDonald’s PHANTASTES. The man was C.S.Lewis’ inspiration (Lewis didn’t write a single book that didn’t quote MacDonald at least once) and the fantasy world he creates in that novel is […]

Balboa Park’s Old Cactus Garden

In downtown San Diego is Balboa Park which¬†that receives over 1/2 million visitors every year and contains a zoo, 14 museums, several gardens, and dozens of restaurants. This massive city park (America’s largest) was created in 1835 making it one of our nations oldest public […]

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you’ve figured out that we aren’t actually in California or Nevada anymore – we’re in our last week headed back to Georgia. The primitive camping and travel has kept me from downloading & editing pictures along the […]

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, CA

After leaving San Diego, Trey and I headed for the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It is California’s largest state park and the only one that allows open camping – basically pitch your tent wherever you want. We found a nice secluded location near Borrego, CA […]

Cabrillo National Monument, CA

Climbing out of his boat and onto shore in 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the […]
