Joshua Tree and Baja

We're back from our camping trip and have great photos of our time in Joshua Tree and Baja. We spent a couple more days in hotels than planned due to rain that kept us from traveling further south for a couple of days due to a flooded arroyo. But that gave us more time in Estero Beach and El Rosario getting to know the area. We saw some of the best sunrises ever while camped on the beach on the Bahia de Los Angeles on the Sea of Cortez and such lovely rocks and sunrise and sunset light on them in Joshua Tree.

Test Camping

We went on a short camping trip with Merle and Nicole to test out our equipment and my new hip before we leave next week on a 12 day trip that will take us to Joshua Tree National Park and then into Central Baja. With wonderful, spring-like weather, we had a glorious two days and one night camping and hiking on the Sonoma coast.
