Photo Friday: The Forest for the Trees

Joshua Trees

Joshua Tree National Park

This is one of the most unusual forests I’ve ever visited. Though named “trees” the Joshua tree is more like a cactus. It’s related to the agave, but I don’t think you can get tequila from this bizarre plant.

What’s even more crazy is that this area, the Mojave Desert, is only about a hundred miles from the beaches where Baywatch was filmed (you remember Baywatch, right?). From endless water to arid desert on one short drive.

I could talk about how this picture inspires my writing, or symbolizes the “dry” times when creativity hides. But I’d rather hear from you! What does this photo stir in you? Writing ideas? Travel ideas? Thirst?

Happy Friday!
