Joshua Tree National Park is only two hours away from LA, and for me, it’s a sacred escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This desert has an otherworldly feel, and I love it.
On Sunday, we packed up our bags for a day trip to Joshua Tree. Our plans were to meet up with Tushar and Vinh to explore the night sky with a telescope and search for comet Lovejoy, which we had attempted to view last weekend from our rooftop. There’s never a dull weekend with Kelvin!
The morning looked promising. The skies were clear, and we headed out to the desert stopping at Cabazon for some outlet shopping. Before long, the clouds rolled in, which inevitably ended our hopes for seeing the comet that night. The good news was that it made for some beautiful desert lighting.
Kelvin’s sad this fist rock got the best of him. Until next time!
The rock formations at Jumbo Rock are super interesting. It was fun exploring the area for the first time.
The sunset had incredible color. Joshua trees are the coolest looking trees.
