2002_CA_Joshua_Tree12CA -- Joshua Tree Natl Park
I'm not sure what I thought the attraction of Joshua Tree would be. At this point, I was pretty tired of deserts. I think the main reason I wanted to go there was because of a the title of the "Joshua Tree" U2 album.

The park is mostly known for its groves a Joshua trees (surprise!). I asked the...

The jungle boat tour was pretty cool. They took you out on the river and traveled down it for awhile, pointing out a variety of animals.

One squirrel was on the Mall. He was sunning himself on a park bench and I decided to try to photos. He ended up climbing a tree and then coming down again, apparently expecting treats. The other was in Lafayette Park.

Near this is a squirrel feeding section with nuts and water. Two albino squirrels were here which I hadn't seen in...
2003_DC_Earth_Day_03042258Dept of State -- Earth Day (2003) with Colin Powell and birds
While the Earth Day activities under the Bush administration were minimal, there was an activity scheduled for the State Department that I was interested in attending.

2003_GA_Snake7GA -- Fort McAllister State Historic Park -- Redneck Snake-Hunting Safari
Now, try to imagine. This guy from Texas is wandering through the Fort McAllister State Historic Park when he hears a rattlesnake in the distance. Instead of staying on the trail, he walks 20 or 30 feet to an old wood pile and starts poking a stick into it. Sure enough, there's a rattlesnake. So he...

2001_MA_Whaling45MA -- Cape Cod -- Whale-watching trip off the coast
While I was bored silly in Cape Cod, some couple suggested that I take a whale-watching boat trip.

These pictures were taken after a fire had partially gutted one of the buildings.
2001_MD_BARC4MD -- Beltsville -- Beltsville Agricultural Research Center
A tornado had hit the area a few days before. I was working in the office and heard about it afterward.

I wasn't planning to visit the exhibit this year but, while I was in the garden photographing the roses, I ran into a guy babbling on a cell phone. (I'm not a huge fan of cell phones.) Eventually, he was joined by his girlfriend. She said "I didn't realize you'd act like that..." To which he replied,...

A highlight of my trip to New England right before the September 11 attack in 2001 had been a whaling trip outside of Cape Cod where I got to watch minke whales jumping out of the water. It was great. That was the major reason I decided to go back to Massachusetts at the same time this year and it was...
