Wonderland of Rocks

After exploring the Sequoias for a couple of days we drove south to Joshua Tree National Park, where we spent a few days camping and hiking.  Our first hike brought us on a roughly 7 mile round-trip trek to Willow Hole and the "Wonderland of Rocks".  This was a fascinating hike!  The first half of the walk was very easy, walking on flat ground that was quite firm.  

The second half was a little more difficult as the route continued into a sandy wash.  The sandy wash brought us up close and personal to the rocks, and it certainly was a wonderland!  I found myself wanting to stop around every bend in the trail to photograph the next set of rocks that came into view.  The way that erosion has altered the landscape here is simply mind blowing!
