Picturing Joshua Tree

January 27, 2002

I thoroughly enjoyed the article "Camera Ready Inside Joshua Tree" (Weekend Escape, Jan. 13).

As a graduate student at UC Irvine in the late '70s and early in 1998, I spent winter vacations in Joshua Tree.

All my photos remind me of a totally alien landscape, almost prehistoric. The isolation of the campsites was something right out of Stephen King: the cold morning silence with not a breath of wind; weird rock formations; twisted and aged metal and wood in the most ungodly places; palm and Joshua trees; cactus; the occasional beer bash. It felt like an alien vacation paradise.
