#HeyFrancis | This shot sums up such a memorable day in my life. My father's best friend, who had driven out to California from Indiana, invited me to a day of relaxation at the Desert Hot Springs. Little did I know that this journey would continue on to Joshua Tree, to Pioneertown (a live-in Old West motion-picture set built in the 1940's), and culminated in an observatory-like experience in the Mojave Desert. There's so much of our country left to be explored. Share your travels and journey experiences in the comments below.
