Joshua Tree

At the end of spring break we decided to camp at Joshua Tree. The campgrounds are on a first come first serve basis and unfortunately we got there at 6pm on a Friday night and every campground in the entire park was full and had been since Wed. So we found a motel in Yucca. It was very cool.

We spent the next day in the national park.

From all of the rain this year the desert was blooming. Gorgeous!

We were able to secure a campsite for the next night as we found someone leaving. We camped in Jumbo Rock campground. Each campsite is surrounded by huge rocks on which the boys loved climbing.

Skull rock is just a short hike from our campsite.
The Cholla Cactus Garden is amazing.
At the end of our trip the boys received their Junior Ranger badges.
