Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park in California is approximately an 11 hour drive from Santa Fe and is one of the best winter rock climbing destinations in the United States. The first photo is from Amboy, CA where a company produces chloride products. I don’t know exactly what’s going on here with the canals, but I’m assuming it’s a step in the production process.

Lynne, Alana, and Victor headed towards a bouldering spot near the Real Hidden Valley.

Unfortunately a couple of our friends had an accident while rappelling in the Wonderland of Rocks, but were evacuated quickly by helicopter. One suffered cuts/bruises while the other sustained a fractured arm and hip (but is doing well and expected to make a full recovery).
