Joshua National Park Adventure with Friends

We are here in Palm Springs Thousand Trails in Palm Desert Ca. where it is Sunny and warm. It is a very nice park LOTS of palm trees and friendly people. Only drawback is the sites are tight to say the least. When we arrived Gail and Mike Alexander and Sharon and John Roberts were already here and just starting to set up, after we got all set up next to the Roberts, here comes our great friends, Janice and Rick Binns. They got a site just across from us. A couple of days later our other great friends Janice and Dave Evans arrived and got all set up just behind us. It’s great that we all were so lucky to have gotten so close together. We all met up and decided to go to Joshua Tree National Park the next morning.
The day started out with a wonderful breakfast at a local restaurant Coco's Bakery and Restaurant where we had some great food and conversation. Then it was off to Joshua Tree once there we stopped at the visitors center for a map of the park.

We hiked a mile loop through some amazing rock formations and even got to see some guys do some climbing up the side of these rocks. After stopping numerous times for many more wonderful pictures along our journey through the park the Roberts and Evans headed back to the RV park. The Janice, Rick, Ed and I continued on, stopping to explore and take more pictures. It started to get late and we were starting to get hungry… so we headed into town. We found this great Mexican place in Yucca Valley. Edchadas Mexican Restaurant the food was very good, now we are all feeling stuffed and very tired, so it’s back to the campground for some much needed rest. Looking forward to tomorrow and more visiting with great friends.
Until next time… Happy Trails and Safe Travels.
