The desert is growing on me. Growing up near mountains and rivers, I was always more inspired by those landscapes, but the longer I live in SoCal, the more inspiration I find out in the desert.
The mister is finishing up another brutal quarter in his Ph.D. program and we are looking forward to next week, when he gets a bit of a break (from classes at least), and we'll head out on an overnight camping adventure in Joshua Tree National Park
. Today I look to other photographers to fuel my excitement for this trip.
A campfire, star gazing, fresh air- all a reprieve from the noise and light of the city. Even if it's only for one night, it'll be much needed time away for us.
On the way home, we'll stop in Palm Springs and pay a visit to the Moorten Botanical Garden
. This place has been on my wish list for a year- doesn't it look amazing?! Spring break or bust.
