Sunny California

Last week, Tina and I visited Adam and Kristin in sunny California.  Was it ever a shock to our system when we stepped off the plane to drive home.  Sunny temperatures to rain and wind.  

I thought I'd post a few shots showing Salvation Mountain and it's surroundings.  

The color, the sun the company...our time couldn't have been better.

You can tell from these photos...Tina was enjoying her time at the mountain.  

Our first night was under the stars and eating dinner by a fire.  Notice the little jar with the punctured lid?  That's the pet scorpion that joined us.  ugh

On our first day there we went to the canal for a short swim...Maddie thoroughly enjoying herself.

These are photos of sculptures that we found not far from the mountain.  Love the found elements.


We drove to the mud flats or mounds..not sure what they were called.  We dug clay and made pinch pots.  The kids will do a pit fire when they are dry.  I loved getting my hands in the clay!

Kristin and I relaxing.

Adam at the Salton Sea.

A trip to Joshua Tree and of a visit to the Crochet Museum....where else would one go to have a good time.  We loved it.
