Well, it’s safe to say that after a good amount of years away… it’s good to be back. Clean slate and a fresh start is relative to the journal and to me.
I was originally going to save my first entry for my getaway in the near future, but what the heck… Joshua Tree’s earned a good spot in one of my favorite places to disconnect from my everyday routine.
Let’s get started…
This brings me Coachella feels. Windows down, summer heat, road tunes, and a steady cruise all the way out.
I came for the peace.
My original plan was to be here by the time the sun rises, but I clearly valued sleep more… I will make it out here for that one of these days. No complaints about this morning though.
I’d say the time mark is right about 0900, and the temperature range is roughly in the high 80ºs – low 90ºs.
Always have loved the rock formations here!
This looks like a solid spot to setup camp.
Rock climbers playground.
Hidden Valley trail is a awesome little hike. Well worth enduring the heat. 10/10 would do it again.
Hall of Horrors. This is one of my favorites in here.
I’ve put off seeing Skull Rock for way too long. Finally got around to seeing this thing. Pretty cool and you definitely have to see it at the right angle.
iPhone Camera Roll:
I was kinda worried about what the heat might’ve done to my film… looks like it just made things warmers. Pretty appropriate if you ask me.
