Joshua Tree a Week Late

Kevin and I met our daughter, Sarah, in Joshua Tree for her 30th birthday.  She was running a half marathon in the moonlight and I brought a sign to hold for all the runners.  She also arranged a tour of the Lost Horse Ranger Station with the Park Superintendent.  Kevin lived in there as a child.

The back yard.

We duplicated the photo of Kevin with his grandmother on the front steps.

Before the race started, Kevin and I started walking on the sandy course.  We watched the sun go down, then could see the runners coming our way with their headlights.

Then we watched the moon come up and I shouted encouragement for 40 minutes as all the runners passed.  We were at the 3.5 mile mark and had to haul it back to the start.

We hiked up to a mining operation.

We got up Monday morning before sunrise and hiked over to Skull Rock.  I left Kevin there taking photos and hiked back to camp catching this gorgeous scene.

We visited the schools Kevin attended in that area.

With a little time to spare, we checked out the Urban Lights at the LA Museum of Art.

And, of course, hit two breweries on the way to LAX.
