Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park

Pinkham Canyon offers a scenic offroad trail through a remote part of Joshua Tree National Park. It can be dangerous in rainy weather as it funnels water run-off through the canyon. As such, the brush is in a constant state of change. While navigating the trail, I noticed this bush and was intrigued with its shape. I see several things, but the most dominate is a figure or form of some sort that comes alive.

Exploring the backcountry of Joshua Tree National Park is an experience completely different than visiting the main sights of the park. Old Dale Road, for example, leads you across the desert for over 25 miles, which you can enjoy pretty much by yourself. Along the way, there are several mines and various buildings in decay. On this building, someone painted an American Flag on the side, which I photographed through a wire fence to perhaps suggest our country’s current state.

Sometimes you gotta commit to get the shot!

While off-roading in Ketchikan, Alaska, my camera took a beating from the rain. I did my best to keep it clean and dry, but I eventually gave in to the fun in order to photograph the spraying mud from our tires. I posted an image a few days ago that caused this mess.

Off-roading is great fun. But racing through the mountains out of Ketchikan, Alaska in the rain is awesome!!! @adventurekartexpedition led the way as a group of us played in the mud. At first the weather was mild with just a light drizzle, and I did my best to keep my camera dry. But after a while, and as the weather got worse, I gave into the fun and started to photograph the spraying mud from our vehicles. Luckily my camera survived.
