Joshua Tree National Park is located in California's Mojave desert, but there is an oasis formed by Barker Dam which was built by cowboys around 1900. This reservoir was constructed for cattle and mining. Today it is a refuge for birds and other park wildlife ... plus it’s a good photography subject.

It's not uncommon to see veins of gold (aspen trees) running up a mountain, but you don't always see them with the moon punctuating the sight. This scene was found on South Lake Road near Bishop, California. The yellow of the aspen trees and the blue of the sky are a great color combination.

McGee Creek, California is a must see in October when the aspen are decked out in their autumn colors. A short hike along the McGee Creek trail brings you to an extraordinary view of the valley covered with aspen and pine. This was among the best displays of fall color I saw this year on our tour of the eastern Sierra along Highway 395. I'm so grateful for this beautiful Sierra landscape.
