Joshua Trees and Cactus Flowers

I took my wife to the airport in Las Vegas (off to see our new granddaughter in Houston)and on the way back this morning I decided to use the Old Highway and stop off at the Woodbury Desert Reserve. Located on the Beaver Dam slope near Littlefield it is a forest of gnarly twisted Joshua Trees. The Joshua blooms were done but the wildflowers were perfect. Of course I had to share a few more pictures with you.

I noticed a strange side effect from my wildflower searches -- hay fever! I've been sneezing all day today, so I might have to cut back a little til the pollen quits blowing around.
