Joshua Tree is located in the Mojave and Colorado Deserts of Southern California and is a perfect destination in the fall, winter, or spring. It is a climber’s playground with diverse formations and vegetation. Step a bit off the main highways and remote desert wilderness is yours.
It is a New Year! And guess what that means in my household? Yep, the trip planning begins. If perhaps you are in need of a bit of inspiration or cheering on to make your dreams happen, I would like to share a letter that was given to me as a Christmas gift. A gift from the heart.
I am really excited to share an original artwork created by fellow hiker and artist Nancy Romanovsky. This is the third piece of art she has painted based on a photo featured on Lady on a Rock. The latest oil rendition is taken from my winter blog entry, Eastern Sierra Winter Adventure to Palisades and Arches.
Well it had to come to an end. What a wild ride this summer has been! My husband, family, students and school beckon. These are great things to go back to. I am very blessed.
It can be hard to see in the beginning, but eventually it becomes clear that every moment on this earth — from the mundane to the amazing — is a gift that we’re all so incredibly lucky to share.
“One step at a time is good walking.”
– Chinese proverb
If today doesn’t prove anything, it proves that it all goes.
Oh, it goes.
I’m up for anything as long as I have a break.
~Ella, my grand daughter
