Joshua Tree National Park

March 17, 2016

We made it through beautiful Palm Springs and this cute little desert town with hours before the sun was due to set. So, we set up camp, grabbed a map from the ranger and set off to hike into the sunset. Since we had so many hours of free time, I thought that it would be a good idea to bring my cameras to play around and have fun. Granted, that meant carrying like 30lbs of camera stuff on my back and not enough water (because I didn't want it to spill on my cameras. Obviously a bad idea.)

If you make it to the top, you get to sign this notebook. Who even looks at these things though? They seem a little pointless. 
Just some cliche mountain top photos.

The view from the top was phenomenal. I just love the desert. I'm so glad I got to do this with my best friend!

As the sun began to set, we decided to head back to the mountain we had climbed earlier that afternoon.
