California Bound- Getting Closer

Mojave desert landscape and PALM TREES. As the temperature warms, we drop to 4000 and then 2000 ft. No more snow and the sun is hot. We pull off layers of clothes and toss them in the back. Then in Palmdale on the Pear Blossom Hwy hundreds of Joshua Trees. Stopped at a Trading Post. They had postcards! Rare as hen's teeth these days. You used to be able to stop at any gas station shop and tell from the postcard selection what the locals thought was important about where they lived. - Maggie
