Starry Sky in Joshua Tree

Jumbo Rocks Campground, Joshua Tree National Forest, May 2012
With no waves in the forecast, limited funds for a trip and no desire to stay in a hotel, my ladyfriend and I decided we'd try someplace new. I was reluctant to head to any place without water (an ocean, lake, river or waterfall) for selfish, preferential reasons, but an agreement was made: Joshua Tree National Park. We traded the overflowing beach parking lots of Memorial Day weekend for boulders and trees straight out of a Dr. Seuss book, and a starry night and a meal cooked over a fire. A little bit of gettin' back to nature. Success.
