Backyard of the Day:

Shadow Valley Joshua Tree Forest, Mojave National Preserve, San Bernardino County, California

 The Shadow Valley Joshua Tree Forest is located off Kelso Cima Road in Mojave National Preserve, San Bernardino County, California.


Vi tog fra Kelso Station midt på eftermiddagen, og begyndte så småt at sætte kurs mod Nipton, hvor vi overnatter.
På vejen kom vi gennem Shadow Valley, som er hjem til en af verdens største, tykkeste skove af Joshua-træer.

We left Kelso Depot about mid-afternoon, and slowly but surely heading for Nipton, where we're camping for the night.
On the way we went through Shadow Valley, home to one of the largest, densest Joshua tree forests in the world.





Som jeg sandsynligvis har sagt en syv-fem gange før, er Joshua-træer ikke egentlige træer, men en slags kæmpestore yucca planter.

As I've probably mentioned too many times before, Joshua trees aren't really trees, but rather they are some sort of giant yucca plants.



Joshua-træerne blomstrer, og det er bare SÅ flot.

The Joshua trees are blooming, and they're SO pretty.









Camping Information

We're spending the night smack next to the Union-Pacific Railroad in the teeny tiny town of Nipton, California, at the RV Park associated with the quaint old Hotel Nipton. We are paying $19 per night for electric and water and an extra $10 for use of shower facilities. The showers are located in a quanset hut and have the most amazing water pressure in human history. Well worth the money!
