Last weekend I took a little trip with a couple of family members to visit my brother who lives in the Mojave Desert. He and his wife are expecting a new little one so my Grandma, Mom, and other brother headed down for their shower. The valley morning was hazy from smoke in the foothills combined with a heat wave. I’m not fond of either of those things and my allergies were going crazy but the beautiful sunset and moonrise almost made up for it. I haven’t driven over Tehachapi pass in a car before, but have very fond memories from riding in the truck as a kid. I’m always surprised at how many memories come back when I visit places that I’ve been before. We made it down to see him just before the sunset.

    1. It was pretty warm. I’m used to a really gradual warmup and it was hot as soon as the sun was up in the morning, and hot until the sun went down.

  1. My hubby is a photo buff and he loves taking photos in the dessert. We both love the middle-of-the-road shots, although they always make me very nervous! I also like the roadsigns with the empty road and blue skies. Great photos!

  2. Wow! Fab pictures once again. I love how vast and diverse the American landscape is. Here in Ireland everything is just green and lush 🙂

  3. Wow! Beautiful photos. I was just talking to my boyfriend about how I want to get better with taking videos on our travels + adventures 🙂 something so fun to look back on!

  4. Very cool; it’s awesome to get a bit closer with nature. Love the range of perspectives you got in the shot (e.g. down the middle of the road), and that little cacti is pretty cool-looking! (I’d say ‘cute’, but I wasn’t sure if that was the best way to describe it. It’s so prickly, it almost looks fuzzy..!)
