Don't Look

Superstition Mountain Museum

Look at Superstition Mountain. Look at the snakes. Look at the skeleton. Look wherever you like, but don't look at the camera. :)

Road Closed Ahead

Joshua Tree National Park

After exploring the area north of Joshua Tree National Park, we had intended to drive through the park to return to Interstate 10. However, we encountered a couple signs suggesting (but not clearly stating) that the southern park entrance/exit was not accessible. As the sun set, we turned around and headed north for the long way around the park.

Noah's Art

Noah Purifoy

"I do not wish to be an artist. I only wish that art enables me to be."- Noah Purifoy, 1963

Artist Noah Purifoy spent the last 15 years of his life sculpting junked materials into art in the Mohave desert. As I walked the 10 acres of assemblage, I considered what each item might have looked like when they were created -- before many years of exposure to the desert.
