    • I’m happy to have shared some of the U.S. with you, Draco. It’s such a big country, with lots of beauty. We are lucky to have had so many forefathers and -mothers who protected the land for everyone’s enjoyment. I found your visits today a pure delight, thank you, my friend.

    • Thank you for your kind words and visit, John. Joshua Tree is a very special place, with those cool-looking trees, the barrenness, and the surrounding majestic mountains. I’m glad you liked it.

    • Thanks very much, John, nice to see you, thanks for dropping by. Joshua Tree park is very special with its barrenness and silence, the cool-looking trees, and the surrounding mountains.
