  • That was a great trip to Joshua Tree National Park! Loved the photo of Kermit sitting in the Joshua Tree! Kermit can eat almost anything! That is so good when you are out in the middle of nowhere and there are no restaurants! Great album! Katherine

  • Hey Kermit, you have a sweet tooth ;o)

  • Reading your blog put a smile on my face that lasted all day, thanks!

  • Hi Markus–These photos are terrific! I work for a nonprofit that protects and advocates for national parks. Would it be OK with you for my organization to reprint one of these images on our blog, with credit and a link back to your story? I think our supporters would really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing these!
