It’s been an interesting few days at Joshua Tree National Park, we have had rain showers a couple of times since we left home last September, but on Thursday it poured for hours for and the wind didn’t stop blowing until sometime Friday. We noticed a couple of cars at a coming out of the park with snow on their roofs. We are not camped at a high enough elevation but several campgrounds had some snow.
On Saturday there was no wind so we decided on a short hike three mile hike to Mastodon Peak.
The trail starts at Cottonwood Spring
The trail is pretty easy to start.
Looking back it’s hard to see the trail
That’s where we are headed
Glad we weren’t underneath when this rock split
The trail ended and it was straight up.
The view from the peak
Nice to see some flowers
We had to go to Indio today for groceries The dogs do not like staying but it is too warm to leave them in the car.
We brought this box back, Louis got in it, so I put his blanket in it.
Of course Jake claimed it right away.
So Louie took Jakes bone.
