Joshua Tree National Park

After we left our desert camp, our next destination was Joshua Tree National Park. I’d never visited before and was excited to see another of our national parks. The weather however was definitely on the chill side—I think Southern California was doing it’s best to remind us that it was still late December.

A simply beautiful road.

I must admit that we didn’t get out and hike the park the way we probably should have but we enjoyed it anyway. A friend had lent us a tripod so I experimented with some night photography and braved the chill morning for some sunrise shots.
