Brothers of the Rock – Joshua Tree National Park – California, USA – Somewhere In Time Weekly Travel Photo.
Somewhere In Time is a weekly photo from around the world. Enjoy!
I love Joshua Tree National Park. If you ever get the chance to visit – go!
It’s a playground for adults and children alike and is one of my favorite spots in California. The landscape is unique – part barren desert, part larger than life boulders all dotted with snarled Joshua Trees that sprout up randomly. It’s a little bit unearthly and a little bit magical at the same time. If you go, try to camp at Jumbo Rocks. It’s one of the several campgrounds within the park and looks just like it sounds. Giant boulders make up the campground and embody the perfect background for tents, campfire stories and starry nights. They also make for great climbing material. You can climb on them for hours on end – literally spending full days exploring new heights and jumping between rocks. Last year Randy and I took Chachy (our dog) to Joshua Tree and we all ran around the rocks. Chachy loves climbing rocks and he took off like a rocket as soon as we got out of the car.
It was about sundown when I spotted these two boys in the distance. They appeared to be brothers and one was showing the other something he had found. They were standing on top of a very large boulder as the sun drifted off below them. I was able to snap a few photos before they jumped off to the next spot and this one became the clear winner when I saw the curiosity between them. I love this photo because even though I don’t know who they are and I only occupied the same boulder with them for a few minutes I can understand the sense of wonder they share in this photo.
If you visit Joshua Tree I guarantee you’ll feel the same way.
