Super Bowl Sunday

Since it was Super Bowl Sunday, we planned on being big fat fatties (BFF-what we call ourselves when we eat too much). We decided to start our day with a hike on our way to Kim’s uncles.  The 49 Palms Oasis hike seemed like the right distance to fit our schedule, was on the way, and sounded pretty cool.

Joshua Tree NP has several fan-palm oases. These are places where there are geological faults that have crisscrossed with groundwater. This water nourishes lush vegetation and creates the conditions for an oasis. As we hiked into the canyon we could see the palms from a distance.

We had fun scrambling around on the rocks, trying to capture the timer shot of the day in the shade of the palms.

Well… being American and all, we had to leave the wilderness so we could watch the Super Bowl. We had a good time hanging out with my uncle and his friends in Palm Springs.  Good food, great game, and silliness with the 3-D glasses.
