Manzanar is still a work in progress.

The new Secretary of Commerce -- Norman Mineta -- is a Japanese-American who was held in an internment ("relocation") camp in Colorado during much of World War II.

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 ra...
