Thanksgiving at Joshua Tree can be a weather crap shoot. Bet on cold, or colder. But the days can be nice too. Wednesday was COLD, Thursday was chilly with frost on things in the morning and was okay till about 3:00, then it cooled off again. Friday we wore the fire barrel out putting fuel into it. Even had a snow flurry or two, flakes that is. Saturday was great and we thawed out. Sunday was a bit warmer.
Attendance was decent for the holiday that it was. We didn't expect many and we weren't disappointed. George Lavacot rolled in Friday and spent the day with us. A pleasant surprise as he does live in Oregon. It was even a bit chilly for him too. Leone and Larry Fisher came out Saturday and spent the day, He took a couple of neat videos of their trip up the high line on Allan Ratliff's train. Allan's caboose, West Side Lumber #4, is star of the show in the first one as they back up the grade, enjoy them for their unique perspective and view.
We moved rocks out of a campsite down to John Griffins wall project and even took rock down from the rock breaking project at the end of track down to the wall project on the Station curve.
We'll be out again after Christmas to enjoy the New Year. The trestle portion of the high line should get a kick start then, looking forward to it, see you there.
