Joshua Tree NP - Marble Rock

Posted by

This round rock is supposedly one of several in the park but I have only seen this one. It is located in an area called "Jumbo Rocks" which is a delightful area with a campground (bring water) and easy nature trails. The Park actually has several delightful but very basic campgrounds...it's all about the scenery and hiking or climbing. And there is plenty of both at this National Park.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
