Seven months ago, this is what 11:30 p.m. looked like from my bed

Joshua Tree tips

Joshua Tree sunset

A friend of mine is going to Joshua Tree soon and asked me for some hiking tips. So here is a list of our favorite hikes (in order):
1. Split Rock Loop (2.5 miles)
2. Ryan Mountain (3 miles, lots of elevation change)
3. Fortynine Palms Oasis Trail (3 miles, lots of elevation change but not as much as Ryan Mountain)
4. Barker Dam Loop (1.5 miles)
5. Hidden Valley Loop (1 mile)

The two without loop in the name are out and backs.

Arch Rock and Cholla Cactus Garden are must sees but not really hikes.

Some longer ones we didn’t go on:
Lost Horse Mine (6.2 miles)
Willow Hole (7 miles)
Panorama Loop (6.6 miles)
Lost Palms Oasis (7.2 miles)

Best food was at Joshua Tree Saloon and 29 Palms Inn. Pie for the People was also good (but no beer).

The decade is almost over

Solstice season

Arnarfjörður from Dynjandi

Today’s photo was taken a few days before the summer solstice, after 10 p.m., on a night that never became dark*, in northwestern Iceland.

Today we are a few days before winter solstice, and I long for those long, warm days of summer.

* More than an hour later, on the same day, at 11:30 p.m., my world looked like this.
