Joshua Tree National Park

To say that Joshua Tree National Park is a beautiful place, is an understatement!

The place is amazing to explore, easy to climb on rocks and fun for the entire family! As always, I'm a lot better and showing you how amazing a place is instead of writing about it, so here are some awesome pictures of Joshua Tree!

 The Amazing Joshua Tree!

 This was the night sky at 3am in the morning. I literally looked out the window and saw the milky way and decided to get up and take a pic of it with our Airstream.

 and of course, I will always remember getting up at 3am to take this picture of a Joshua Tree in the middle of no where. I could hear coyotes in the distance but knew they were far enough to not bother me, so I just kept shooting! So glad I did!
