Joshua Tree NP - Cottonwood Wash

From Cottonwood Springs Oasis, my cousins and I walked past a second oasis down Cottonwood Wash
to the head of a dry falls.

We followed the old (and somewhat precarious) teamster road around the falls to the lower wash, 
and then walked back to where we could see the dry falls from below. (In wet years, the falls can become a scene of rushing water and red-spotted toads. Bighorn sheep often come up the wash for water in the early hours. [])
