Our weekend adventure

26 Mar

Skull Rock

We took a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park this weekend. Purely by coincidence, the Los Angeles Times had this article in the Travel section and we looked for insight into our day trip.

A secret passage way

We stopped at the visitor center and picked up a map. We set out with a plan to walk a trial first, have lunch, then walk a second trail. The first walk we took was at Skull Rock, a 1.7 miles trail.

I did it!

We climbed a few rocks and took in the view. The kids had a great time exploring.

Be cool

We completed the first half of the trail and then the little one got tired and hungry. We cut the trail short and headed back to the car.

Key View

The next stop: Key View. This .25 mile trail has great panoramic views of the Coachella Valley. We had some lunch first, then walked the trail to see the sights.

A little breezy

We had a great time, despite the fact that it was extremely windy and a bit cold. We will be going back for sure… we have a pass now! Have you ever been? What are your favorite trails?

    I love Joshua Tree. The Wonderland of Rocks is fantastic. My family also enjoyed hiking to Ryan Mountain.
