Weekend Snapshot: Camping in Joshua Tree

Posted on by Corelyn

File last weekend under “adventures.” As you may have gathered, we (Jennie and Corelyn) went camping in Joshua Tree National Park over the weekend. It was a lot of fun, but it was very, very cold. We took approximately one million photos. Here are a few of the best ones.

From left to right:

  • Campfire bacon cooked in the trusty cast iron. We may or may not have gone through 3 pounds of bacon.
  • The sign at the Joshua Tree entrance (FREE park admission! Another reason to love Veteran’s day).
  • The stunning Key’s view, looking out over the mojave desert and the San Andreas fault line.
  • Jeff, setting up a photo from on top of a boulder.
  • Cholla cactus (looks fluffy in person, but watch out! It’s prickly)
  • Campsite coffee, made in a french press, served in a tin.
  • A bluebird posing to have it’s picture taken on top of a massive yucca bush.
  • Joshua Tree rocks, excellent for climbing and scrambling.
  • Our view of the desert when we awoke Saturday morning.

What about you? Would you have braved the 33 degree weather to join us in Joshua Tree?
