Happy 40th!

Happy Anniversary to my parents!!!
It's been 40 years today,

Congratulations! Well done!

Desert Oasis

We hiked the longest 2 miles ever
to get to that desert oasis
in the rocky mountains of Joshua Tree.
The oasis came complete with
flowing water, palm trees, and even frogs,
which can make you wonder,
how did this life even get here?
