We hate to say that we probably weren't even in Joshua Tree National Park for a total of 24 hours before packing up again and heading to the Grand Canyon. But never-the-less, we enjoyed what we got to see and had a cozy little campsite nestled between huge boulders ("Jumbo Rocks Campsite", a very fitting name). The Joshua trees themselves were impressive in a variety of shapes and sizes throughout the desert landscape. Taylor remembered his mom saying that Joshua Tree was one of her favorite parks so Marilyn, we hope you enjoy these photos!
Today we traveled for quite a whole to get to the Grand Canyon, to which we arrived just as it was getting dark and cold...very cold! It is currently a chilly 28 degrees which is why, instead of shivering in our tent, we came just outside of the park for some wifi and warmer temps indoors! Hopefully it will be warmer tomorrow as we hike down into the canyon to get to enjoy the beautiful sights!
