Still Driving to Flagstaff

We are still driving to Flagstaff, we passed through 29 Palms California and there is nothing but desert! There are more pictures updated for you to view. Some from the USS Midway and some from the S. Carlsbad Campground.
While we were on the Hornblower San Diego Bay Cruise we got a special treat --- we got to see Nuclear Attack Submarine coming into port at Coronado's Submarine Base. Usually, they only come to the mouth of the harbor to change crew-- but this one was finishing a deployment and was coming all the way into the base. There were military security, Coast Card and tug boats all around it. Was very cool. We will try to find some pictures of that and post. No pictures of that in the Happy Car---which is the blog car
Today we drove through Joshua Tree National Forrest area... everyone was wondering what those trees were, we guessed cactus, yuccas and miniature palm trees... we got on the radio and asked Charlie if knew..and sure enough, we got --- "Those are Joshua Trees and sometimes Camels eat them".... Thank you Charlie... LOL
