Visiting Meg, Jimmy, Madison & Gavin

The reason we went to Yucca Valley was to visit Mike's daughter Meg and her family who live in the dessert east of Los Angeles. Here they all are from left to right Mike, Meg, Gavin, Madison and Jimmy.
The house is situated 30 mins from the base at Palm Springs where Jimmy works as a naval medic. It is also a commutable distance for Meg who is Principle at a primary school in Riverside but her trip to work takes an hour and a half.

The landscape is dry, sandy and arid. There are rocky outcrops on the side of the valley and as well as the usual small desert shrubs there are these amazing Joshua trees everywhere.
