Joshua Tree

After months in hibernation waiting for whatever next crazy thing will strike 2020, I decided to skip town and social distance in south-eastern California. Road trips are my favorite way to get away. I take at least one two-week multi-state trip every fall. We’ll see what happens this year. But for now, Joshua Tree National Park!

I rolled south through Mojave to get to Rancho Mirage. That was my home-base this trip. Joshua Tree is about 30 minutes away. I also took half a day each to go to Lake Havasu City and round the Salton Sea with a swing through the ever-interesting Bombay Beach. I have been to both before and they are interesting and fun. Riverside County in California has reached a higher level of open already. I was able to dine-in at restaurants and enjoy a beer in an actual place. I hope you’re safe and finding ways to enjoy life in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
