Until now, I never...
Went to Joshua Tree National Park


Every year that I have gone to Palm Springs with my friend we’ve talked about going to Joshua Tree, but could never seem to tear ourselves away from the pool at the hotel.  But this year we finally did it, and I am so glad we did!  Joshua Tree is only about an hour’s drive from Palm Springs, and it is incredible.  Who knew a desert could be so amazing, so other-worldly, so varied in it’s landscape, and the Joshua Trees themselves are so totally cool.  The rock formations are so incredible, even us middle-aged women in flip-flops couldn’t keep from climbing on them.  And I kept thinking while we were there that the kids would love this so much – we need to come back as a family for some camping.
