Southwest Trip Photos

Last night, after a nice day at Sequoia National Park we had an uneventful drive through the rain back to my parents' house.  Here, I've had a chance to download a visuals from each of the stops on our trip (note that I have also added some photos to the previous blog with quotes from the kids' journals).  

 Los Angeles from the Getty Museum.

At home away from home in the Palm Desert area with Aunt Sally and her good cooking.

 Vegas, baby, Vegas.

 Death Valley Badwater (elevation -282 ft).

 Cholla Garden in Joshua Tree.

 Hoover Dam.

Eli and Joey at in the bristlecone pine forest.  These are the oldest trees in the world at well over 4,000 years. 

Yours truly being dwarfed by the largest tree in the world: the "General Sherman" sequoia.

We logged over 2000 miles on the trip.  I am so appreciative to live in such a wonderful place and to have had the freedom to make this journey with my family.
