Palm Springs Vacation

Nothing like a little change of pace from the Seattle norm than sunny Palm Springs and the incredible Joshua Tree National Park.
Hanging out in Palm Springs condo-hell. Ummm....what's under that towel? Boulder bounding in Joshua Tree. dcp00781 Kathryn going for some serious rock climbing.  Believe it or not (I'd suggest NOT) she summitted that rock.
I'm not sure how this happened, but now what do I do? Let me introduce you to my new friend Mr. Spiky McSpikington. Kathryn doing a bit of bouldering to find her way up there. dcp00790 Yep, that's a Joshua Tree.
They are some seriously funky plants, seen most often in Dr. Suess books I'd imagine. dcp00793
