With the passing of Glenn Frey many people might not know that he has a Mojave Desert connection with Joshua Tree and the nearby Palm Springs area. Here are some pictures from The Eagles’ 1st photo shoot for their 1st album “The Eagles” in Joshua Tree National Park in March of 1972, taken by famed rock-n-roll photographer Henry Diltz.  Much of the imagery of the Eagles often portrayed the desert so I put this photo-collage together to tell the story.  My searching skills acquired from my previous blog about Gram Parsons might help me find this exact spot in the future:

Thank You Glenn for a lifetime of memories, this is my tribute to you,  hence my closing statement since the first day that this blog started   🙁

For the purposes of this blog I call myself Mojave because of my love for the Mojave Desert. I have lived in the Yucca Valley area of the Hi-Desert since 1976, I have always loved our Mojave Desert. My appreciation for the Mojave has grown even more over the years. I am a Career & Technical Education teacher and coordinator at the high school level as well as a part-time college instructor. I also served on the Town of Yucca Valley Planning Commission for 5 years and am a current Town Councilman. In my spare time I enjoy researching desert facts, exploring the desert, geocaching and enjoying the many animals that keep my wife and I very busy.
