Joshua Tree Wilderness
There is something about the wide open vastness and calmness of the desert that I am drawn to. I have made a lot of trips to Joshua Tree this year, each trip exploring new terrain, and camping under the stars at different sites. Last weekend we ventured out into the remote wilderness portion of the park, which is only accessible with 4WD and a trusty map to know where on earth you are, since there is literally no reception. It was a labyrinth of dirt roads, cacti', and the occasional fellow explorer along the way. We explored abandoned mines, as miners came in droves during the gold rush and left relics and rusty artifacts to be discovered by those curious enough to find them. Here are some photos, all 35mm film, from the trip.
