So a loooong time ago (end of January of this year), my friend, Melissa, and I surprised Chris and Mel's fiance, Joel, with a trip to Joshua Tree. They deserved it, just because they both turned 30 within a week of each other. I took a million awesome pictures, and then never shared them anywhere. Not on Facebook, not on the blog. Wow, Katie, way to let your memories go to waste.
We rented an amazing Midcentury Modern homesteaders cabin in Joshua Tree (the city, not the actual park), and had a chill long weekend, driving around, showering outdoors in the desert, grilling meat and attempting to start a fire. The first night, we were really cold and inhaled a lot of smoke. But by the second night, we discovered quick-burn logs, and conquered that fire!
One of the things I love best about California is the possibility for quick road trips over a weekend, and we will definitely return to Joshua Tree. The desert is calling!
