Our family got the chance to visit southern California… and one of the beautiful places we got to visit was Joshua Tree National Park. The park was enormous and we only got to drive through about half of it. There are plenty of places to pull off to get out of the car and go exploring.

Even though the temperature was in the low 80’s …it being the desert….it felt much hotter….and the intensity of the sun was a bit overwhelming….but none of this stopped our kids from scrambling up onto the boulders and wondering down a path or two.

Below are a few pictures of that day….I decided to make these photos as black and whites…felt like it really expressed the starkness of the desert’s beauty.
