Joshua Tree Jan 2014

As the kids get older it's harder to pull them out of school to go camping. We waited a long time to hit the road this school year. We finally made it to Joshua Tree over break.  We camped 4 wonderful days in the park exploring all the interesting rock formations and trails. We had so much fun hiking everyday.  The kids can do anything we can do.  A milestone for us.  It was hard to keep up with them.   Here are a few photos of this magical place.

This was our first time doing this hike, we will do it again next time too.

This is the best place in the park to see everything

It was a 1.5 miles straight up.

On top of Ryan Mountain, you can see all the way to the Salten Sea.

The sunset from our camp site in Jumbo Rocks.

These are the rock formation up close, we boulder over them all day.

The Joshua Trees are beautiful.

We free styled it up this little mountain to view the sunset one night.

We've been to Joshua Tree National Park over a dozen times, we love it here.

The rock on top of this mountain was about a 15 minutes from where we camped.  We thought it would be nice to climb up there and watch the sunset in the valley.  We were right!

Every night the sky gives us a new show.
Wow, amazing, spectacular!

Hello Moon!

The moon was so beautiful.

A trail.

We found a nice place to climb a tree.

We hadn't seen this formation since the kids were really small.,  It was fun showing the kids again.

I hope you enjoyed my little tour.
