Chosshua......I mean Joshua Tree

After a non-Christmas in Pie Town (we boycotted the holiday) we drove to Joshua Tree. Prairie and myself both had negative views of the area after our previous visits. It's a beautiful place that is enjoyable for that reason but the rock is decomposing choss for the most part. We figured we'd give it a second chance and try to keep our negative attitudes from rubbing off on Martin.
While Martin shared our sentiments on the poor rock quality, we still managed to have a blast. We filled 3 days sampling some classics, seeking the gems, and hiking one and a half hours to the one place in Josh with decent stone, the Underground.

Flying backmeat under the desert sun.
