Wife and I decided to drive up to the top of Copper Mountain, which is just the other side of Hwy 62 from where our place is. Beware - this is a pretty tough road. Very rocky and some very steep area. I almost turned around at one point; didn't want to beat up the Jeep too badly! However, views from the top are spectacular, so we forged ahead!
Fortunately, my wife brought her little Kodak point-and-shoot. She's a very good photographer... she has a much better eye for artistic composition than I do.
My sister over at Lap Dog Knits blogspot got me started looking at Flickr... incredible pics, and every photo group imaginable. I ran across one group called "Flare Friday" and posted a photo that my wife had taken (told you she's good!):
|Yours truly - Cottonwood Spring, Joshua Tree National Park|
|The road up.|
No flare here, but view looking due North from the top of Copper Mountain. That's the 29 Palms Marine Base on the horizon.

Last one for this post... got some things I need to get to before our drive home. My wife took this one from our back porch this AM.
