Notice, the backpack... Yeah, much more prepared this time... by orders of "The Boss"... Hiked all the way to the Lost Horse Mine in Joshua Tree. Quite a trek, but not too hot and interesting destination. Who isn't into mining these days with TV shows like "Gold Rush" and "Beiring Sea Gold"... 6.2 miles round trip. Not too bad for this ol' lady. Okay sweetie I need a break. How 'bout next weekend a spa day? Yeah! I'm ready.
PSYCHE! Nope not a spa day at all. NO, NO, I don't want to go. I DON'T WANT to go again. Dang, you won't let up... Fine, I'll go, but I won't like it!!! Cottonwood Springs and Mastodon Peak Loop, Joshua Tree.
Another 6 mile hike. Ugh, this is hard work. I'm a dancer not a hiker. Oh yeah, it's beautiful but can I PLEASE have a spa day???? Does that look like a real smile to you??? No Way... It's hot out here!
