I copied this quote from the internet...here And in the stroy from March.

"According to legend, Mormon pioneers considered the limbs of the Joshua trees to resemble the upstretched arms of Joshua leading them to the promised land. Others were not as visionary. Early explorer John Fremont described them as "…the most repulsive tree in the vegetable Kingdom."

We had our Christmas Day dinner at Denny's, Denny's being The Only restaurant open within 30 miles as guaranteed by Gavinda, our host at the Circle C.

We had a cutie-pie waiter who was workin' us for a nice tip. He was a pretty bad waiter but plenty entertaining so he won for that 30% tip on a Denny's senior special.

BTW - Food! Travel night-dinner at Denny's(!). Today we ate breakfast at the motel 'buffet' which consisted of bagels and peanut butter, lunch at the Crossroads Cafe that was surprisingly delicious, and dinner at the Twentynine Palms Inn which was also delicious but that was what we were expecting. Then we drove back into the park for some stargazing, and then enjoyed the jacuzzi and had hot cocoa and biscotti back at the room. What a great day!
