In March, on a whim, my friend Sean and I drove to Joshua Tree, just for two days. It was a good time, minus the wind chill factor that brought it down to 25 degrees at night. We explored as much as we could. In the middle of Joshua Tree it feels completely prehistoric…if they made a Jurassic Park in the desert this would be the place. Also,. I must say the 24mm 1.4 mk II is an amazing lens to photograph national parks with, best lens purchase I’ve ever made. In a few days we will see what kind of magic it can create in Sequoia.
