Because I am an archivist at Chadwick School part-time, I catalog many photos each year for historical purposes. I do not feel comfortable ever putting photos here that feature the faces of our students; you can go the website to see the kids. But, whenever our Director of Outdoor Education, Alan Hill, transmits outdoor trip photos, I am always amazed at some of the environmental shots he takes.
Joshua Tree National Park in California is a wondrous place. When I was a kid, my mom loved to drive on local road trips and so I was first introduced to this area by her. She loved what she called The Lord's Candles, or what I believe are yucca trees that are called Joshua trees. JTNP is a destination for rock climbers and I have been there to see my eldest son and youngest son climb and my two eldest kids climbed there before they were five. It is one of the places Chadwick sudents are taught to climb.
Here is one of Alan's photos of Joshua trees at sunset.
