Dinner time, firing up the bbq, and still climbing rocks, of course.
Watching the shadow fall over the park is a treat to behold. Have you seen this amazing time-lapse video yet?: More Than Just Parks – Joshua Tree. It beautifully captures the shadow falling. I love this horizon sunset rainbowing that has happened every time I’ve been at Joshua Tree. And we waited around in hopes of capturing some milky way goodness. But the milky way must have been representing somewhere else, and my attempts were pretty half-hearted (brought the tripod, but never hooked my camera up to it). These are just 30 second exposures with my camera sitting on the dash. Without fail, a car would drive by (glaring headlights), people would swing flashlights, the car next to us would turn on lights, and in the case of the picture below, my dudes re-entered the car, thus turning on our lights. Thus concludes our daytrip to Joshua Tree.
