January has already past.

WOW, it is hard to imagine that we are already in the second month of 2012, it seams like only yesterday we were all worried about Y2K.

 After the reunion in Q with our class mates and some from other classes we headed to CA.

We did the open air market held every weekend at the College of the Desert. Someone told me it was a little more upscale than the average flea market and I have to agree.

Lots of art work purses and clothes, new clothes not the rags you often find in flea markets. There was a good verity of new stuff, and I wound up with another pole for cleaning the rv.

A couple days later we had to do the Palm Springs Ariela Tramway. It was pretty cool, the floor revolved so you got a 360 degree view going up and back down. The ride took us to a State Park on top of the mountain and it was COLD up there. We even saw sn*w up there.

                                                        You can see a long way from the tram.
                                                 Down there is where we parked the jeep..

OH That dirty four letter word, SN*W

                         This is one of the two tram cars you ride in, one goes up as one comes down.

The only thing that could have made the trip better would have been clean windows on the tram cars.

We found out that Bobbie and Sal, (my udder brudder from anodder mudder, and my sista from another mister,) were spending a few days in Joshua Tree N P, and Marcia had not got her book stamped with that N P yet so we took a drive.

It was a nice day for a drive and we had the windows out of the jeep so we could see better.

We did see some awesome sights.

Marcia spotted a Kit Fox crossing the road so I backed up hoping to get a picture, but the camera wasn't fast enough. We did get a few more glimpses of it but the fox was too foxy for a picture.

This is one of the advantages of being full timers, just check out Bobbie and Sal's yard for a few days. They have a beautiful yard to play in, and Sal won't even have to cut the grass.

One of the rocks has the look of a skull so they named this skull rock.

And lastly I will leave you with a picture of a Joshua Tree.
