Out For A Sunday Drive

FabGrandpa and I were feeling cabin feverish today, so we decided to drive over to 29 Palms, California. It is about 160 miles from us. We crossed over the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona.

Hwy 62 is mostly straight, after this big curve. We drove all the way over to the other side of those mountains.

Was this a lake or a mirage? We couldn’t tell, but there was a lake shown on the map.

We drove through Joshua Tree National Park. We had not been here before today, and were amazed at the huge rock formations here.

The Joshua Tree is really a yucca plant. They get amazingly tall for yuccas. They are taller than Jim.

If you want to see the rest of the pictures, go on over to Facebook and look me up. You can find me by using my email address: fabgrandma at gmail dot com. Or, you can send me an email and I will add you as a friend.

She writes about her life of living full time in an RV, eating a gluten free diet, things she does for fun, and things that are important to her. She makes you look at photos of her grandchildren, talk about her husband's survival of oral cancer, and shows you things she has made. You know you want to look.


  1. Oh I have always wanted to go to to the Joshua Tree national park…they are so cool!

  2. That looks like a dry lake bed. What lake was it supposed to be? Love those Joshua trees.

  3. Very cool! When I mentioned JOTR to Berta she asked when we would go as she hadn’t been in years. Been a few for me too. I love those boulders. Will check out the facebook pics.
    Going to Dewy tomorrow in my truck to pick up a free couch.

  4. You are so lucky to have such a great place within driving distance!

  5. Reminds me of the good ole days in Arizona as a kid…

  6. Joshua trees are gorgeous. So many people dislike them out here. Glad to see someone else shares my appreciation for them.
