View From an Old Truck

I like to imagine what it would be like driving the old stakebed GMC truck that sits in my yard decaying. Here's the view out the front window. Those hills in the distance are the northern boundary of Joshua Tree National Park.
Of course, this truck is just "yard art" and is beyond refurbishing. But, still, fun to imagine what it would be like driving it down an old desert road.

And here's the old desert road I would drive down first...
Linking with Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from around the world!

  1. I think you should stick an old 8-track in the dash and just sit out there. Transport yourself to another dimension of time and space. The GMC Time Machine. (Okay, so I slipped into a Twilight Zone episode just then)

  9. Boys will be boys. If I hold my thumb out will you give me a ride. A much better view than you'd get sitting in traffic on one of our motorways.
