Camping in Joshua Tree

Click here to buy prints from this post
In my last post I mentioned that Joshua Tree National Park has nine campgrounds, which are all available on a first-come, first-served basis, and when we visited the park on Friday and Saturday all nine were full. We arrived again on Tuesday and a couple of the campgrounds were crowded but we had a few options in the Jumbo Rocks campground. Many of the spots are close together, so we chose one that had a bit of separation from the neighbors, put our “reserved” sign up, and went out hiking to watch the sunset. sun flare through rocks Joshua Tree National ParkJoshua Tree National Park at sunsetSun flare in Joshua Tree National Park lighting up a cholla cactus Continue reading »
