Back from a long weekend outside of Kernville, CA; Stayed at a beautiful cabin on the edge of the Sequoia National Forest. It was located 7 miles, and a twenty degree temperature difference , straight uphill from Wolford Heights. Wanted to ride the whitewater even though the river isn’t that great this year but had our doggie with us and nowhere to stow her while we rafted – so next time!
To get there from here (San Diego) you need to drive across a large stretch of the Mojave. I wouldn’t want to live in the desert but I do love to drive through it. It feels like anything could happen and is full of interesting things to see. If you haven’t been – It’s not like the Lawrence of Arabia type desert with flowing sand dunes. It’s a rugged, harsh landscape; full of rocks, hills, hard packed sand, cacti, Joshua trees and scrub. Here are a few shots from my view…. For more of my work look here: MScott-Photography.com
You can NEVER have enough Cactus ….or gifts for that matter!
Could be Iraq!
