Joshua Tree

Last weekend, my girlfriend and I went down to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park. These are both located in a desert in Southern California. While there, we hiked and hoped to view desert wildflowers in bloom.
先週末彼女とジョシュアツリー国立公園とパームスプリングズへ行った。そこでハイキングしたり、花の咲いたのをみたり、するつもりだった。

This picture shows Joshua trees, which the park was named after. The smaller plant to left is a yucca plant. And there is snow on the ground - it was cold and even snowed there, which is very rare for this part of California.
ジョシュアツリーの写真だ。その木にちなんで名付けられた国立公園だ。左の小さい植物はユッカだ。そして地面に雪があった。寒かっただ。そのところに雪はとても珍しい。

This picture shows the Bigelow cholla cactus in bloom. These cactus live at a lower altitude than the Joshua trees, so are in a different part of the park.
咲いたベゲーロ・チョヤ・サボテンの写真だ。そのサボテンの砂漠の海抜高度はジョシュアツリーの砂漠の海抜高度より低いので、他の所だ。

This picture shows Sylvia standing behind a beavertail cactus that is in bloom. This was the only one of these cacti which we saw in bloom - most did not look like they were even close to being ready to bloom yet.
シルビアさんは咲いたビーバー・テイル・サボテンの後ろにいた写真だ。そのビーバー・テイル・サボテンは一つで咲いた。 他のはもう少しいかかるだろう。

This is a picture of a barrel cactus in bloom. They produce these yellow blooms on their top. These cacti can get pretty large - this one was about 3 feet tall and a foot in diameter.
咲いたバレル・サボテンの写真だ。植物の上に黄色の花をつける。バレル・サボテンは大きくなる。撮ったサボテンの高さは1メートルで広さは3分の1メートルだ。

This picture is of a waterfall in Indian Canyon that we hiked to. Because of the recent rain and snow, there was a lot of water flowing through the waterfall.
インディアン・キャニョンの滝の写真だ。最近の沢山雨と雪が降ったので、滝の水流は凄かった。

The trip was a lot of fun.
旅行は楽しかったよ。

I didn't know Josha tree is real! I thought it could mean something because I bought a CD of U2, Josha tree...I learned one thing today, thank you, Peter!
