The most epic day. .
It’s hard to believe one state can be so incredibly diverse and we found that especially at Joshua Tree National park today, in the Mojave Desert. Expecting it to be sweltering, it was easily 10 degrees cooller than P.S. & while we were there we witnessed an incredible storm come through & the temp dropped to 13C, before popping back up to mid 20s again.
In discussing which trails to do in a day trip, with the Park Ranger, he kept saying just stop whenever you feel like it & climb whatever rocks you feel like, just make sure you have plenty of water. Very easy going for a park that covers 800 000 acres. And it was so glorious - we could not get enough of the rock scrambling, the climbing, the new vistas around every bend, including at one point overlooking the San Andreas fault. So many pictures but hardly any do it the justice it deserves! #joshuatree #california #rytsocalhols #nationalpark #climbing #family #hols #socal #nature #landscape #boulders #epic
