We drove up through Pioneertown a couple of weekends ago after leaving Joshua Tree national park. There was a huge fire through this area a few years ago, as you can tell from this dead joshua tree. There are many, many trees like this one along the road. It's sad to see and I remember seeing signs in the town that stated "Flooding due to fire". I hope the area grows back soon. Pipes Canyon is also here and it is a beautiful spot to visit, too. SkyWatch Friday for March 8, 2013.

It was NOT caused by humans. Just one of the results of our summer monsoon thunderstorms.****
