Troika in the Desert

When the city starts to feel like it's closing in around us, one of our favorite escapes is Joshua Tree national park.

Joshua Tree isn't just an escape from the city, but it can often feel like an escape from reality. From dinos to martians, as you enter the park it's easy to imagine yourself teleporting to another place and/or time.

We find ourselves frequenting the park for its camping and climbing. So on our last trip we decided to pack a Troika mirror with us. It's hard geometric lines draw a perfect juxtaposition against the organic shapes of Joshua Tree's dramatic landscape.

I don't pretend to be a photographer, but it's tough to snap a bad picture in such a beautiful place.
