The Last of Summer

Since today's Labor Day holiday is sort of the last hooray for summer, I thought I'd finally dig out the last of the photos from our summer vacation.  These were taken on a day that we spent in Joshua Tree National Forest back in May.  I can't believe it was that long ago!  We took a hike (it's really a pretty easy walk) out to Barker Dam.  There is a spot were during the rainy season water naturally collects.  When the area was first being settled, the ranchers in the area built a dam to have a place for their horses and cattle to drink.  On previous trips to the area the water has been much higher than it was on this trip.  You can see the waterlines on the rocks behind me in some of the photos.  Further down the trail there is a spot where petroglyphs can still be seen carved into the rocks although someone vandalized them by coloring them in at some point.

Holy crap, these photos are so gorgeous.

It's weird that your summer is ending and mine is about to begin.

What gorgeous photos...what a great way to celebrate the last day of summer! When I first saw these photos, I was thinking "How did she pull that outfit off today?!" (I'm from PA, too, and it's freezing here today!) The fact that these are vacation photos makes much more sense.

What a gorgeous place Jennifer, the picture with the petroglyphs is incredible. I've been all excited about autumn but seeing you in this pretty playsuit makes me want to see summer starting all over again.
I would wear that romper in september as well though, the colors are just perfect for the season transition ;)
