I finally made it out to Vasquez Rocks. It was a last minute trip, just like I always imagined how I would find myself up there. I have seen those rocks in Star Trek and other movies and always wanted to go there and climb, run, sit and see them for myself. It was a 25 min ride from work. The place was not as impressive as I imagined but it offered other little treats I didn't expect. Not many people were there when I went so it was perfect for feeling alone on a distant planet with out a worry or concern.
Next stop Joshua Tree, another place I still haven't been to.
