This is kind of a long post but I can’t get over the beauty in the desert! So different from our glacial mountains…
These are the remains of the old homestead and bunk house of the miners that were hoping to strike it big here…
While away on vacation, we had the privilege of driving through Joshua Tree National Park which is part of the Mohave Desert. It is vastly different from our area in NW Montana, seeming very desolate and uninhabitable.
Especially for this little thing…
We visited the Cottonwood Spring Oasis, where there were not only several Fan Palm trees but as the name suggest a couple of Cottonwood trees.
We were very pleasantly surprised to see this little hummingbird perched on this thorny bush. I believe it is a female
BLACK-CHINNED HUMMINGBIRD Archilochus alexandri but could be wrong. 😉
