Great trip report.
I was their around Christmas time and the car campgrounds were packed.
Hike a mile from the road and I was alone.
I will be back and spend more time.Jun 3, 2015 at 5:06 pm #2204466Eric BlumensaadtBPL Member

I love the desert. That's probably good because I live in Henderson, NV right up against the McCullough Hills, the southern mountains of the 'Vegas valley. It's where I train for backpacking.
In the summer training has to start at 6 AM to get in an hour or so before it warms up to 95 or 100 F.
BTW, those are great photos, you ol' desert rat.Jun 3, 2015 at 6:29 pm #2204483Nick GatelBPL Member

I have loved Joshua Tree since the Monument days as well and recently rediscovered it. Truly special.
