Weekly Photo Challenge, Evanescent 2

I’m submitting a second entry for this week’s Photo Challenge, Evanescent, with this photo I took at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada last week. Notice the climber making an attempt up the side of the rock. Well, not a second after taking the picture, the climber slipped off the rock and was […]

Reclaimed by the Desert

Fascinating, dilapidated old buildings on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, at the east end of Palm Springs. How they get the imagination going… ~SueBee

Tahquitz Canyon Texter

Hiking up Tahquitz Canyon in Palm Springs, surrounded by cliffs, trail climbing at a pretty stiff pace, water gurgling in the stream down below, brisk, fresh air, and then I see the red hat on this gal sitting on the large boulder (photo opp!)…. it’s not until I view on the computer that I notice she’s texting. Perhaps she’s sharing the beauty of this […]

Desert Black and Whites

I just returned from a few days R&R (rest and relaxation) in Palm Springs, a favorite get-away place not far from home. Most of my time was spent outdoors, hiking, and thoroughly enjoying not being at work. The weather was crisp (downright cold starting late afternoons), the sky either crystal clear or with the occasional photographic cloud formations. While I sort my 850+ photos, I’ve […]

“Sky on Fire”

While driving home from Anza Borrego, the sky looked like it was on fire! Had to capture a pic! Amazing how gorgeous sunsets look with rain clouds in the sky. ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Plants of Anza-Borrego

While camping in Anza-Borrego over the weekend for Cam’s birthday, I spotted lots of incredible plants! Cam and I stopped by the Visitor Center on the way home, and explored the little quarter mile nature trail, which is super neat, since all the plants are labeled! Took several pics here…and I picked up a new […]

Camping in Anza-Borrego

Over the weekend, Cam, his family, and I went camping in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park for Cam’s birthday! What an absolutely incredible place and trip! We camped at Borrego Palm Canyon Campground…an immaculate campground with drinking water, full bathrooms, and showers! The view surrounding our site was absolutely stunning, especially as the sun was rising! […]

“Desert Campfire”

A campfire under the stars in the desert = pure bliss. 🙂 Cam and I went camping at the Mojave National Preserve (please refer to my article Hole-in-the-Wall Camping for more pictures from this wonderful trip), and couldn’t resist the opportunity to make s’mores under the stars with the rolling desert hills surrounding us. 🙂 Recommendation […]

Desert at the Huntington Library

The Huntington Library is home to an amazing museum, and several stunning gardens. I posted about the museum previously, but thought I’d share some pics from one of the gardens. Out of the 14 different gardens, my favorite is the Desert. Featuring over 5,000 species, I could snap pics here all day long! Below are some […]

Hole-in-the-Wall Camping

Mojave National Preserve…what a breathtaking place to visit, and camp! My boyfriend Cam and I chose to stay at Hole-in-the-Wall Campground for a few days of hiking, climbing, and exploring (as well as the awesome camp-side stuff: campfires, s’mores, watching the stars while drinking a beer…). With the sun blasting in our eyes at 7AM, […]

Spur-of-the-Moment Camping Trip

Spontaneous trips are the best, especially when camping and photography are involved! This past weekend, my boyfriend, Cam, and I decided to go camping in Joshua Tree National Park…such a gorgeous place! Cam just bought himself the same camera I have (Nikon d5100) so we turned the trip into a photography journey. We stayed at […]

PS, I Love You!

Palm Springs is fabulous in the summer, and honestly, I can’t wait to go back again… in the fall, winter, spring! It was just a tad HOT when Kat and I took a one night getaway to PS recently. We heard the temp reached 117 during our visit. I’m guessing, though, once you get past 100, […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
