hiking was an important part of my life in Santa Fe. in the 9 months I've lived in Palm Springs I've been too busy to add that to my repertoire here. but today I joined some of my old New Mexico hiking buddies & others for a 6-mile hike in Joshua Tree.
the downside was it was much too windy. the first hour was especially unpleasant. but toward the end the wind was at our backs & that old excitement returnd.
friends from the old days will recall I always had my picture taken on or beside rocks. so I continued that tradition today.
& my pal Ed decided to walk across this skinny train track. the wind was so bad it threw him off balance & he ended up crawling. but he's safe & it's a fun story.
