Joshua Tree road trip in January. (Gathering)

Well, this was briefly discussed a couple of days ago by a few of us here in Interference and I was wondering if anyone else would like to participate in a road trip to Death Valley National Park, to the original location of the Joshua Tree.
This will most likely happen on either January or February, on a Sunday.
Some of you might have visited the location before, I have not and from what I hear, it's truly worth the drive.
Below are some notes about the location and the history behind the tree itself;




"The Joshua tree itself used to be located in the middle of the California desert just outside Death Valley National Park. But in October, 2000, fans discovered that the tree had fallen over. (see below) It appeared to be a natural fall, not the result of vandalism. The photo on the actual front album cover of The Joshua Tree was taken at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley, California. Photos appearing in the various Joshua Tree tourbooks and other promotional pictures from this era were shot at The Harmony Motel, which is southern California's Joshua Tree National Park; at other random locations in the southern California desert in and around Death Valley; and at the historic ghost town of Bodie, California, on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains north of Mammoth Lakes, California."

Might be cold, but might not be bad. I went Jan. last year and it was nice! By noon, no jackets were needed.







wish I'd seen it still standing. Martha you have a great pic of you and the tree.

I'm definitely interested because I haven't seen the tree either. Right now, either month works for me.

You also have to listen to the silence out there too... have everyone stop talking, walking, moving... it's deafening, and awesome.

dang, I just checked out the directions in google maps and it's a 21 hour drive from here. That's a little bit much. I'd loooove to go, though. Why can't one of us own our own plane or something??
