This week's challenge was textures, so as I was walking around the local park this morning, I spotted some palm trees and went closer to investigate. Palms are so interesting~just LOOK at the textures! One time I spotted a raven fly into one of these palms and deposit something...maybe it had a nest there?

I took a drive home this afternoon out by the Indio Hills because our recent storm was clearing out and the mountains of Joshua Tree National Park were covered with snow. Instead, I looked the other direction and found this smoke tree amid the lingering clouds. The desert was so clean and sweet-smelling that I just had to get out and look around.

I drove out Thousand Palms Road last evening. There were only a few high clouds in the sky and the full moon was high in the sky. As I drove down the road, this is what I saw. Sunday Sunset for February 5, 2012.
