After witnessing this sunset I had to say: "Thank you God for showing me such beauty." I decided to make the hike up Golden Canyon for sunset early in the afternoon as clouds were forming over Death Valley ... thinking the clouds would be a good background for my shoot. Not only were they a good background, but a large cloud behind me to my right lit up brilliantly red. It cast a wonderful warm light on Golden Canyon, like a giant spotlight in the sky.

You can find many stories in California's Joshua Tree National Park. This mighty juniper split a rock with its fan-out strategy. Not that it could reason, but its hardy nature accomplished the task, since the rock crumbled giving way to the tree.

Where are the Joshua Trees? That was the first question we had as we drove into California's Joshua Tree Nation Park from Twenty-nine Palms, CA. We did find them (at 2,000-6,000 foot elevation), but more space in the park is dotted with small bushes, cactus, and rocks ... which have their own beauty in this desert landscape at sunset.
