Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park,  was one of my top favorite parks of all-time.   The Mohave Desert and the Colorado Desert, which each have very distinct desert ecosystems, come together in Joshua Tree National Park.  We ended up going there twice. The park, characterized by rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes, consists of just over 1 million acres! The first time we visited is when I took the boys (while J.Jay was visiting) and Saylor for a quick scout-out trip while Greg was working.  The following weekend we all went to do some more exploring.  The beauty was so overwhelming that it was nearly impossible to take a bad picture.  See for yourself…

If you ever find yourself even remotely close to the L.A. area, make sure you take some time to take a trip to Joshua Tree National Park.  As I said above, each of the two deserts that converge here have very distinct ecosystems, which are primarily determined by their elevation.  There are very few places that more vividly illustrate the contrast between “high” and “low” desert.    It definitely deserves a spot on the bucket list.

More travel blogs to come, so keep a watchful eye out!  Until we meet again…

Happy Trails and Sunny Sails!
