Joshua Tree National Park

November 27th, 2016 · No Comments

Joshua Tree National Park is located in southwestern California and is comprised of the Mohave and Colorado Desert. It’s a massive desert, featuring numerous chollas and rock formations, but the star of the park is the enigmatic Joshua Tree. The Joshua tree is not actually a tree, but a Yucca plant, capable of surviving in the desert for hundreds of years; some specimens survive a thousand years.

I spent three days here exploring various parts of the park and camping in the back country and it was amazing!

The nights were bitterly cold, but stunningly clear starscapes. The days varied wildly from beautiful warm sunshine to violent windy snow storms. The first night was spent peacefully of the edge of a soft sandy wash and the next night was spent hunkered down in my tent for more than thirteen hours as the storm raged and raged, threatening to shred my tent to pieces or even lift it into the sky!

But the amazing vistas of the California Trail and the quirky Dr. Suess-like landscapes of the Boy Scout Trail made it a very interesting and enjoyable excursion!
