Desert Heat Or Just My Imagination

During our recent family vacation in the California desert areas of Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park, my imagination was running wild out in nature...or perhaps it was the heat...or perhaps I am circling around and recapturing a child's sense of wonder?!  Do you see what I saw?  Hope you enjoy this quirky assortment of vacation photos!
