Camping trip to 
Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree is made up of two deserts. The Colorado and the Mojave. I spent most of my time in the upper Mojave. The only shots I posted of the lower Colorado are in the link marked Colorado.
And YES the sky really is this blue !!!!
The Camp site The best thing about camping here is seeing the stars at night. They are just incredible.
Some rock shots and climbing There are something like 2500 marked climbs here. People come from all over the world to climb rocks here.
Barker Dam Trail It was short easy hike only about 1-1/2 miles. I wanted to see the petroglyphs was my main reason for taking this hike.
Colorado Desert shots The Colorado was pretty but I didn't find it as interesting as the Mojave.
