Are you tired of cold and snow? Can't find any interesting structures?
Then come along on a hike to Lost Palms Oasis in Joshua Tree National Park. This area was once the homeland of the Cahuilla Indians. They had no contact with whites until 1840, and by 1850 were on reservations. Since this desert area has never been farmed, many structures remain. These structures are still visible along trails leading to water. The starting point is Cottonwood Springs, which was dry when I was there in May 2010.
