We took a brief trip to Keys View in Joshua Tree National Park. That is, if a 5 hour trip can be so called. You see, Keys View is only 12 miles from our condo – as the crow flies – but it is 80 miles by road. We ascended from sea level to 5,200 feet. As we remembered from past visits the view is spectacular!
As seems to be the case everywhere we travel, humans love to leave a personal mark. These stone sculptures are always interesting and much more ecological than other types of graffiti.
The road to the mountaintop goes through the most one of the most impressive joshua tree forests in the park.
No trip into this park is complete without the ever present rocks.
With shadows lengthening we head down the mountain.
