New Sight In Joshua Tree
Joshua Tree National Park is a place of creepingly slow change. The life and death of the Joshua Trees themselves grow and die only very slowly. Set that against the background of even slower geological changes, and you know things there just don't change much. But now! Now we've got a plane crash! Just 10 miles northwest of the Cottonwood Visitor Center a plane crashed that had been stolen at Big Bear by two 14-year old boys. Somebody should be on the scene with a camera and GPS device -- oh, but it's raining today.
