We still have two days left to explore this amazing place, and we’re already planning a return next year.
To our surprise, the desert is blooming great guns, especially the many different cacti.
Bird-wise I’ve picked up a few lifers: Scott’s Oriole, Black-throated Sparrow, Gambel’s Quail, Cactus Wren, Costa’s Hummingbird, and Verdin. Hopefully we’ll get a few more over the next 4 days (2 in JTNP, 2 in Palm Springs).
For now, here are a few photos, taken with my iPhone, so forgive the quality & formatting, as this is also my first post using the WordPress app.
