Desert Moonlight

We made our annual "pilgrimage" to Joshua Tree National Park a couple weeks ago. The beauty and solitude of the southern California desert, is something we always enjoy. We often leave the car and the road at a random place, and just "walk" for a few miles.

When one is in the desert, it could be simply the clearness of the air, or the clearness of the mind, but it's easy to be content -- just watching. I can happily sit for hours just watching the rocks and the sky, and the shifting of the sunlight and shadows.

We only spent a few hours here in the park, but the timeless flow of life goes on, whether we're here to observe it or not. On this trip, we saw some quail and a desert fox, as the sun was setting; as the full moon was rising.
