Named for its resemblance to willows, desert willow is actually related to catalpa trees, Yellowbells (Tecoma stans), and Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans). Its exotic-looking blooms, rapid growth, drought tolerance, and ease of maintenance have made it a sought-after plant within its range, which in nature is from south-central Texas south to Nuevo Leon and Zacatecas in Mexico and west all the way to southern California and Baja California. 📷E.

Personal post : : Recently we spent a few days in the deep dark woods of Shenandoah NP chasing bears. We didn’t see a SINGLE BEAR! But we did see a couple of huge waterfalls, crossed a few rivers, and cursed the hike up and out a little. My glutes 😫. Tried out my new customized ULA Circuit bag which was 👍🏻. Applied today for permit deadlines for backcountry adventures out west - wish us luck! #keepontruckin

We collectivly demonstrated these creative signs that were made by us at Joshua Tree National Park. *---*---*---*---*---*---*---*---
It was fun exploring with Maryna and Adan. We were in search of a heart shaped rock. We didn't find it, and that's okay. We were right where we were supposed to be. 💕
This trail was really beautiful! You should see for yourself sometime. Its the Split Rock trail in JTNP.
The Iconic Joshua Tree at The Golden Hour
The only souls in sight in the darkest of skies.
My friend Maryna and her son Adan met with us on Saturday to explore Joshua tree for a while. She loves the outdoors too! We met at Pinnacles National Park through our friend Linda. We had a great time together!

Take a moment to pause and appreciate what you have right in front of you. Life flashes before your eyes.
I think my face on this photo says it all ~ I’m having no fun at all exploring @visitgoldcountry
😆 Yesterday, I went zip lining and also went 165 feet underground to check out the Moaning Cavern, which was discovered by gold miners in 1851 ⛏ There’s so much history in this part of California, it’s been such a thrill to learn about it all 👍🏻 #visitgoldcountry #visitcalifornia #gopro
We were Milky Way Chasing last night in Joshua Tree. We had to wait until 12:30 a.m. to capture it after witnessing the moonset. It was a very special thing to gaze upon. The crescent moon looked like a shark fin as it descended below the mountainous horizon.
We Explored Split rock Trail yesterday afternoon in Joshua Tree National Park. This place has endless miles of trails to hike. Like I always say, it'll take more than a lifetime to see it all.

I heard there was a park sunset war going on. I immediately went to grab my tablet to capture the sunset at Quail Springs in Joshua Tree National Park.
Happy Sunday ✌🏼| 📍Pinnacles National Park, CA (2017)
Our family’s National Park adventure this weekend was a whirlwind fast and furious experience but we only have to wait 6 days until our next one! Next up for Memorial Day weekend: Flight 93 Memorial, Fort Necessity, Friendship Hill, and Cedar Creek! #followgreg #findyourpark #nps101
We can't live on without the rhythm.
When scale doesn’t translate
A great day at @georgewashingtonbirthplacenm
with the family today. It poured rain all day and we wouldn’t have it any other way! We basically had the place to ourselves talking to the great @nationalparkservice
staff, getting a tour of the house, meeting the animals, and making soap!
The National Park Service never disappoints and historic sites like these consistently creates amazing family memories for us! This is our 91st National Park unit we’ve visited as a family!

Ahhhh-mazing. A throwback to sunrise in Bryce Canyon National Park. We still have six more NPs to knock off the bucket list this year.
Natural bridges and arches are different. Fascinating still the same.
I’m never amazed at how diverse the beauty of our country is. Look at that pink!
We are getting excited to hit the road and check a couple more NPs off our bucket this summer. A throw back Thursday to our sunrise in Bryce.
Sunrise in Bryce Canyon was a memory for sure. Even if I was on crutches. Well worth the early start!
Never wear black for a photo 🤨
I’m going to take a luxurious bath tonight. 💅
A beautiful yet deadly addition to Joshua Tree National Park. #FindYourPark
