Joshua Tree National Park

19 January we headed to Morongo Canyon Preserve to join up with the morning bird hike. We enjoyed meeting people, and seeing a variety of feathered friends, including a nesting pair of hawks.

We had one more hike we wanted to take to a watering hole in Joshua Tree National Park.  It was another beautiful California day! Hard to believe this is January!

A Joshua Tree on Willow Hole Trail

The Willow Hole Trail is the southern portion of the Boy Scout Trail (near picnic area 8 miles in from West Entrance).  A relatively flat hike up a wash to a waterhole which was interesting – a good destination.

A few days later, 24 January, we headed back to the Coachella Valley Preserve to take this photograph at the pond. We then had a picnic lunch under the California Palm trees, saying  “until we come this way again”.
