"You belong among the wildflowers…"
Missing the desert today.
Some snaps from Joshua Tree National Park, including me pretending to have conquered a mountain by climbing all of 3 metres up it. We cruised down near Cottonwood Springs to check out the wildflowers :)
My friend and I are driving from LA to Phoenix tomorrow, as a starting point for a trip up to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. I’m so excited. I love road trips and I’m really excited to see a proper desert (we don’t have them in NZ). I’m not excited for the extreme heat, but it’s been so cold in LA these past two days that it’s not entirely unwelcome.
I kind of wanna make an Arizona-themed playlist for the drive, consisting of all the Arizona-based bands on my iPod (The Maine, A Rocket To The Moon, Gin Blossoms and Tom Petty because he writes great road tunes), but my friend and I have very different musical tastes and she’s hit a real rough patch these last few days, so I think it’s fair to submit the car DJ duties to her.
I’m planning on taking a shitload of photos, so watch this space…
