Joshua Tree!!! I’ve been looking forward to an adventure here to see an actual Joshua Tree in Joshua Tree. They come in so many shapes and sizes. I couldn’t help but take photos of all the trees.
We followed the Burnt Hill Trail for part of the way, perfect for all levels of hikers. There were lots of signs to guide our hike, and paths are clearly marked. There isn’t much shade around but we all had our adventure hats on, plus, to my surprise, the weather was much cooler than the Palm Springs area and there was a nice breeze blowing throughout our hike.
Side note: Other than all the awesome plants, I found desert clouds to be interesting to look at, too. I spotted this thought bubble cloud as we begun our hike and we all took photos under it. …And now, all the Joshua Trees, plus a dash of other desert finds like berry bushes, rocks and cactuses.
I want to go back! Once we got into the ‘deeper’ parts of the park, it really felt calm and was so beautiful. I’d love to be able to spend the entire day here, and who knows, maybe I’ll get brave and want to do an overnight trip. Maaaybe.
Who’s in for a desert adventure?
