As you may have noticed, the blog posts are about a month behind in the telling of our adventures. I am interrupting the chronology of the story to bring you visions of spring on the Vernal Equinox. I know many of you have had cold and wet winters, but spring is coming! We found it already in southern California. Last week we awoke on Friday morning to a snow-coated forest outside of Flagstaff, AZ, but the following day we drove to Joshua Tree National Park where the desert is bursting with spring flowers.

    Wonderful! Thank you!

  2. Glad to see that the evil groundhog’s influence doesn’t extend to the west coast.

  3. Aren’t desert flowers some of the best! They have to try so hard.
