Hi everyone! Hope you’re all doing well and staying inside.
During the first weekend of March, I went to Joshua Tree with my boyfriend, Eli, and his family. We all had a great time, and I wish I was there longer to explore the area more! However, a few days before our trip, my apartment’s shower door shattered while I was showering and I got some cuts from the glass. Sadly, I wasn’t able to do too much intense hiking since I had some scratches on the tops of my feet. 🙁 We were still able to have fun though!
Eli’s parents rented an Airbnb that was cozy and just enough space for the six of us. We stayed in Yucca Valley, only about 30 minutes away from the actual national park.
We ended up hiking the Hidden Valley Nature Trail, which ended up being a really easy one-mile hike. Since it was still winter, it was COLD. I also didn’t expect it to be so windy, so if you go to Joshua Tree during this time, layer up! This hike is perfect for families and there are a lot of cool photo opportunities.
We also ended up going to Skull Rock, shown below. It’s a rock formation shaped like a skull!
You should definitely visit Joshua Tree, and explore the park on your own! There are tons of trails and you can even camp at designated campsites. I’ll definitely be going back some day for another adventure!
Thanks for reading <3
