Always Reaching For Something by Laurie Search

Always Reaching For Something by 

The odd-shaped rocks in the middle are called the Truckhaven Rocks. I was hoping to get closer to them, but after not being able to find them and doing a lot of driving around, we finally figured it out just as it was dangerously close to sunset. And I didn’t want to get caught out hiking in the desert in the dark!! So we walked until we felt we better turn around.

    Remember being in the Mojave Dessert having a walk-about .. somebody mentioned “rattle snakes” .. (That was after we left !!) the biggest thing that will bite you here on the Isle is a “horse fly” .. lol
    Great capture .. x

  • Yeah, when my mom and I went on a hike through a canyon in Palm Springs, there were warnings to look out for rattlesnakes…And I thought, “Okay, I’ll look out for them, but then what do I do if I come across one?” They don’t really tell you that!! Luckily it wasn’t an issue though!! Phew!! :) Thank you so very much, Ray!!! :)))xo
