Day 15:Joshua Tree National Park

Named after the famous Joshua Tree, the national park is located in the Southeastern Corner of California and is surrounded by three towns: TwentyNine Palms, Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley. I saw signs for all three of them on my way from Palm Springs.

The sky was California quality blue and the views were just breathtaking. I drove through many spots starting at the Northern Entrance passing through Jumbo Rocks, Skull Rock, Sheep Pass, Ryan mountain, Keys Ranch and finally Barker Dam loop just as the sun was about to set. You can see the dam in the pictures. Colors of the sunset were different from any other place I have been to in this trip. Temperatures were in the low 60s & suffice to say, I am still suffering from a trauma since I came back to CT!

This is the last post for this trip, 15 days in heaven.

Day 2: Laguna, why I love thou!

We all know Laguna Beach but did you know there was a wilderness preservation park holding the same name with all kinds of wild species protected from development?

It is called Laguna Coast Wilderness Park , and it has some of the last coastal canyons in Southern California. I only had a chance to go through two trails: Serrano and Little Sycamore. I then stopped by the famous Laguna Beach and managed to capture some of the seagulls posing and in action!
