I took a day trip to thrift stores in Joshua Tree, then to Salvation Mountain in Niland, then to Bombay Beach at Salton Sea. It was dreamy. To say the least.
So. I was supposed to camp in Joshua tree this weekend and was mildly upset when it didn’t work out. I did, however, take a day trip with some friends and it was pretty great. The rock formations, views, sunset, weird plants, and even the chilly weather was all so refreshing.
My friend Ali who goes to school in San Diego came up for a visit this weekend! I obviously took her to the happiest place in the world. Here’s a collection of iphone/camera photos I snapped yesterday.
I’ve found yet another place I adore. Manhattan Beach is filled with unique plants (nothing new in Southern California), cool side streets, and a beautiful, serene beach surrounded by mountains. I can dig it.
