Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Time to leave Highway 395 and the Sierra’s, turn east to head over to Joshua Tree National Park. An amazing place made even more beautiful with the desert in full bloom. We certainly timed our arrival perfectly. We spent two nights camping in the desert with lots of walks and a driving tour through the park.

Hidden Valley. Lots of rocks to climb.
Many desert flowers. Just amazing.
Pictographs near barker Dam.

Lost Palm Oasis, near Cottonwood Campground.
This was mining country.
