"Open", Photo Friday Challenge 022511


While it is fairly common to view all the way across the Coachella Valley, from Deep Canyon to Joshua Tree, it is unusual to be able to do so and see fresh snow on top of Joshua Tree National Park. This was the view from Deep Canyon last weekend across the valley. See how open the valley is? That would be looking down at Palm Desert, all the way to the park, high above. After last weekend's rain storm, the entire valley was crisp, clean, and clear! Photo Friday Challenge for February 25, 2011. To visit Photo Friday, please stop at: http://photofriday.com/

  1. I'll bet it's unusual to have that clear of air. Sure provides an awesome view. I've only seen it from the opposite direction, but not with snow in JT. Prediction is snow here by tonight. Stay warm.
