joshua tree national park

Hubby and I went on this lovely 2-day trip earlier this week. We were pleasantly surprised to get into the park for free because it was National Park Week (I didn't even know it existed 'til now!). The landscape is unlike anything I've seen before. Here are some of my iPhone snaps.

This set was processed with ShakeIt app:
We stayed at a recently-renovated motel. You can read more about it here.
Images from this set were processed with various apps: Hipstamatic, PictureShow, and Instagram.
Skull Rock - isn't that just so cool?!!? :) Another cool part was the Cholla Cactus Garden. I will have to post my dSLR images of that garden at another time.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

You are the queen of iphoneography! I love the shots you took at Joshua Tree...amazing stuff. The image of your own shadow reminds me of how often I'm snapping away with my iphone with my D700 slung around my shoulder feeling jealous =P

Wow. What a stylish set of pictures! I really should put the apps I bought to use. I bought so many and I never take pics with my iPhone. These are great inspirations. Love the motel shots.
