Training 'em Young

My granddaughter, at the ripe old age of 18 months, has already been out to the California desert 10 - 15 times, and has been into Joshua Tree National Park at least a few times. I've trained her to keep an eye on the beautiful desert skies, and by now she is used to seeing me with my camera pointed up in the air! Here's a shot of her skywatching.
She also enjoys Jeep rides and collecting desert rocks. I wonder, as she gets older, if she will always love the desert??
Linking with Skywatch Friday.

  2. Chances are likely she will. All the years growing up and all the outdoors places we went to made a college biology professor out of my daughter. She is a rabid birder in her free time. Your little grand daughter will enjoy these photos when she is a young lady. Keep on taking them.
