Camp at Jumbo Rocks (4603)
My newest tent - a little two-man model from REI.
It is destined to suffer the trials of Burning Man.

Fallen Joshua Tree (4623)

. As you see, they have no tap root. We saw several live Joshuas down during this campout and on the hike earlier in April. These were probably due to the big windstorms we had in March.

Huge Nolina (4636)
The biggest damn nolina I've ever seen, by far!
I had no idea they could reach this tremendous height. Nearby was a huge clump of nolinas that weren't as tall, but much more massive. Obviously, this little area was ideal for nolinas.

The complete set of photos is here.
