I live in the beautiful high desert in California, near Joshua Springs National Park. This is where these photos were taken. I hope that you enjoy them half as much as I enjoyed taking them! This is the endangered Joshua tree silhouetted against the sunrise near Joshua Tree National Park. Starlight Mesa at twilight. A California Thrasher greets the new day. A deserted homestead cabin with the sun's fiery morning rays shining through the windows. This nest of fledgling red-tailed hawks was way up in an old cottonwood tree. Three weeks later the wind blew the old tree down. Hopefully, they survived. They were learning to fly. Glad I was able to get this photo of these wonderful birds.
