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?
Today’s tour stop is really fun! Many of the settings and locations in Whirlwind are based on real places, and today you can see photos of some of my favorites on My Love Affair With Books. Come take a little stay-cation and enter to win your own copy of Whirlwind!
