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.
