Looking at the kind of country that that style of bike originates from, it all makes sense.

Nice trip. I have fond memories of riding alongside Big Bear Lake. It was the last nice road before we descended into San Bernardino valley and the last hour or so of freeways on our 2010 ride across the USA.

Day two started of course with Breakfast, we were just 10 minutes before they all came in for Breakfast on Saturday morning.




Our route for today was through Joshua Tree NP



They told us the NP consists of two deserts. The higher elevations with the Joshua Trees is part of the Mojave Desert. Lots of boulders are in that part as well.

Joshua Tree NP....never heard of it !

What a beautiful area! Those boulders seem to be part of a whole seam of geological features along the West Coast...right up to the Canadian Border.
Keep going...this is GOOD!

Yeah the boulders are quite impressive.
Here is the story to it:
>>After the arrival of the arid climate of recent times, flash floods began washing away the protective ground surface. As they were exposed, the huge eroded boulders settled one on top of another, creating those impressive rock piles we see today.<<
