Mid May, we cross the border into California and spend our first night watching a flash flood form a river next to our camper. A snake crawls out of his hole beside us, finding safety above the flooded underground. We’ve planned a trek into Joshua Tree to celebrate Sam’s 27th birthday in this strange “forest”. We begin hiking early to avoid the debilitating sun and end up hiding for hours with books in hand in what little shade the baby yuccas provide. We sip warm whiskey and watch a pale pink sunset in the distance, clouds shielding us from the star speckled sky. In the morning, caterpillars with thorned butts crawl across the sand and grasshoppers dive onto the trail like popcorn, scattering with each close step.
