Before heading to St. George we caught wind of the Bloomin' Joshua Tree phenomenon. We decided we must venture to find these curious trees! We journeyed down Highway 91 through the Piute Reservation. On the way we discovered the Desert Rose Labyrinth and decided to check it out.
The Labyrinth is designed to help bring peace to troubled souls. One walks in silence through the maze carrying a token of their troubles. Once they reach the middle, the token is left on an alter. The individual then walks back through the maze in silence and is blessed with peace of mind. It seemed to have a sacred feel about it, though I'm glad we were there alone since Faye decided to hop over every rock and then try to pull it out of the ground.
The path to the Labyrinth is lined with a series of sculptures portraying varying ideas of peace and serenity.
After another half hour of driving we came upon the Joshua Tree Forest! Giggling, and vigorous picture taking, quickly ensued!
Mom wins the award for "Best shot of the day!" I can't wait to see this scene in a large print! Thanks for the adventure, Mom.
