The World's Edge

It's not only Captain Jack Sparrow and Davey Jones who are brave enough to seek out the World's Edge. On a recent trip to the desert, we visited Joshua Tree National Monument, a national park known in part for its giant piles of enourmous boulders. At a point called simply "Keys View", we hiked up a small (yet steep) hill and, upon reaching the top, were able to look out over miles of desert. We could see the San Andreas Fault, and we even caught a glimpse of the Salton Sea. There, for a few moments, looking over the expanse, the wind blowing in my face, I felt... invincible. Jack and Davey have nothin' on me.
