We got up at 4:00 a.m. and drove an hour from the Joshua Tree South BLM to the Cholla Cactus Garden in Joshua Tree National Park to watch the sunrise. There were about a half dozen other like-minded people there. We all stood in silence as the rising sun slowly lit up the spiny thorns on the cactus.

We will be talking about this sunrise for a very long time.

“When you’re here, you’re halfway there.” Halfway between Chicago and Santa Monica on Route 66. And when you’re here, have some pie because it’s the best.
