Friday Funnies

This is a picture of my daughter, Talia. Here she is in Joshua Tree National Park located in southern California. She likes to hike, and she has always loved climbing rocks!

Here, you might say she is between a rock and a hard place. But that’s not what I would say.

I would just say,

Talia Rocks!


  1. Great photo! Are those limestone deposits? We visited a Joshua Tree forest in Nevada a few years back. There’s an
    interesting story about how the Joshua tree got it’s name.

    • Thank you. I am not sure if they are limestone deposits. I haven’t ever been there. Talia went hiking there recently and sent me this photo. I looked up how the Joshua tree got its name. It is a beautiful tree. Can’t you just picture it as a silhouette with a sunrise/sunset in the background?

  2. A roiling stone gathers no moss! Yes, the Joshua tree is really beautiful. We came across a whole grove of them in Arizona. Have a great day.

    • Hopefully, that stone won’t roll with her in it! I’m not sure when we’ll make it to Arizona but hopefully, sometime! Happy Friday!


  3. You might want to consider sending that name suggestion to both the Joshua Tree National Park admin offices, plus Talia’s local member of Congress. Decades from now people will talk about their time climbing the Talia Rocks area of Joshua Tree. 😉 – Marty

    • The way you two travel I wouldn’t be surprised to see you there next week! As a NP, I’m not surprised to read it is on your bucket list. BTW, what method do you use to keep track of your NP site visits? Have a great weekend, and Safe Travels!


  4. Love these pictures. I grew up in this area. 29 Palms, Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley. Have spent a many nights in that park. When I started going asa kid it was still a monument and not a national park yet.

    • Thank you! I haven’t been there, but my daughter has. They camped one night and slept out under the stars. I’d be in our camper! You are lucky to have visited there so often! Enjoy your day!
