A mightily pregnant Zebra-tailed lizard on the trail to Lost Palms Oasis
“In the uncertain light the dunes took the semblance of creeping shapes, their long shadows black as ink on the pallid gray of the earth. A scant growth of creosote bush blurred the view, and the vagueness added to the impression of space and monotony that is inherent in these great levels. The mountain outlines far ahead could hardly be seen against the dimness of the sky.” J. Smeaton Chase (published 1919)

I drove out east of the town of 29 Palms seeking an unobstructed view for the moon rise on March 19 which was billed as a Super moon, El Grande moon, a Pedigree moon.
A moon that was closer to the earth along its elliptical orbit than any tome since 1993. 14% larger. It was fairly cloudy in the eastern sky, it was doubtful that anything would be seen, however, I drove uphill in to Joshua Tree National Park to see if it would rise over Twentynine Palms Mountain (4501 feet, 1371.90 m) in San Bernardino County, CA. At about 7:30pm a glow preceded this short lived glimpse. Within minutes it was obscured by still more cloud.

Cunard brought their QUEEN VICTORIA around from Port of LA to Long Beach to have a whistle blow and fireworks. The after decks of the old QUEEN MARY were packed with visitors, it was a reminiscent day of Southampton ships.
