Who needs an alarm clock when you have the sounds of nature to wake you? Our day started with the sun peaking over the mountains and into our tents while the moon hung around to say hello!
Our awesome breakfast crew got right to work, helping us fuel up before our first hike of the week!
After a quick clean up, we packed up to hit the trails and made sure to get in a team warmup. With an 8 mile hike ahead, getting loose was a must!
We hiked the incredible Lost Palms Oasis trail! How do we begin to describe the magnificent landscape? From start to finish, it felt like we were on another planet!
As we ventured down into the oasis, we stopped for a quick bite to eat and some much needed shade beneath the palms!
The views were simply stunning!
Big smiles all around for making it through the hike!
Since our hike ate up most of the daylight, we settled in for another fabulous dinner to bring our day to a close. Mexican street corn under flashlight is unbeatable!
As we brought the night to an end, some of us decided to hit the hay early after our high intensity day. Others pushed past our sleepiness to partake in a stargazing activity with a local professional who kindly offered to show up the sky! Views from the telescope showed galaxies, baby stars, and a double cluster!
While the stars lit up the sky, we said one final goodnight to Joshua Tree. Our next stop will lead us to a day at the Kelso Sand Dunes in Mojave and our next campsite, Death Valley.
Since we’re back to another remote location, we’ll fill you in on our travels once we hit the road again! Adventure awaits!
