No matter where you were on this beautiful earth last night you got to see a super moon. We drove out to Joshua Tree for a little R&R. Camping these days just isn't what it used to be. We figured out on the drive in that we have been camping in Joshua Tree for 40 years now. Over those years the campers themselves have changed. Joshua used to attract a sort of hippie, laid-back kind of person but now its just regular people who's idea of camping is dragging the city in with them. Big box type recreational vehicles, radios playing, loud talking is the norm now, which is totally sad but in a way will force us into changing. We will go back in the next couple of days, only this time we'll backpack out into the forest of yuccas so we can experience the quiet of the desert, the whole point of going there. We will be by ourselves, well if you don't count the mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes and snakes...oh, and the moon.
