Since the Colorado Desert weather looked amazing from the office parking lot yesterday afternoon, decided to call Bronco Amy and see if she was up for a drive (she was). Headed out toward Carrizo Wash and then toward Seco del Diablo.

The turnoff.

Couple choppers were flying over and managed to get one of them and the moon in a tight formation. Farther up Seco del Diablo, one flew right over the arroyo and I missed the perfect shot.

Battered smoke tree at the mouth of Seco. The seep had water in it.

Walked up a Seco side canyon with a new layer of sediment.

Lots of weird concretions.

A rock fall blocked the canyon creating a small lake. Amy with her beverage. Love the patterns created by cracked clay.

Was out in this same side canyon in March '09 and a couple of hawks were diving at us. Not sure what bird this feather is from.

Lots of fairly fresh rock falls up Seco and Tapiado.

Joshua Tree is not the only park with taggers.

Like that you captured the helicopter with the moon.

Looks pretty quiet out there. I am dying to get out there.

Yes, that's the place. Was "so close" for years but never went out till getting a 4x4. Never knew I was missing so much! Tom
