The Oasis of Murals, Twentynine Palms, CA

A couple of days ago we had to go to the post office and decided to bring the camara and take pictures of all of the fabulous murals that are painted on the downtown buildings. The mural project was started in 1994 by the Action Council for 29 Palm, Inc, a non-profit public art and beautification organization. Their goal is to raise civic pride and beautify downtown Twentynine Palms.

Here's the website that describes most of the murals:

We looked like total tourists as we drove down the main streets, stopped the car, jumped out and took pictures of the murals on the buildings...but we don't care...that's why we're taking this trip, right?

Next blog...Palm Springs!
