Joshua Tree National Park

I went to Joshua Tree for a few nights in between Christmas and New Years last year and took all my pictures on Kodachrome slide film. When I got back to New York, I took the film into be developed and found out that the only place that still does it these days is in Kansas and it’s owned by a guy named Dwayne. I finally received the pictures in the mail this morning and holy hell did I take some bad photos of a place that’s impossible to take bad photos of.

Joshua Tree is a real special area of this country that I could go on for hours about, but it’s easy to get there, so I’m sure you’ll be able to say it better than me.

Lechuguilla Cave, NM

Lechuguilla Cave is located in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM. It’s the fifth longest cave known to exist in the world (122 miles) and the deepest in the United States (1,604 feet). Up until the 1950s, the cave was considered pretty insignificant until a group of miners heard wind coming from the floor. In 1984 some people started digging and, by May of 1986, a new large walking passage was discovered that lead to the 122 miles of cave we now know.
