After over 2,000 miles, 5 sightseeing & hiking adventures, many delicious meals, bronze suntans and hundreds of lizard-spottings later—we're home! This last week was spent driving to and from Boise down to Palm Desert, California, and exploring everything in between.
The day after we arrived in Palm Desert, we took the quick drive out to Joshua Tree National Park. It was cooler than we expected (60 +/-) and incredibly windy, so there wasn't much wildlife out and about. But that didn't stop our 2-hour hike adventure.

A teddy bear cholla cactus, which is anything but cuddly.

Cholla garden (and notice, I'm stepping on one! That was a hassle to get out, let me tell you!).
More parks & photos to come!
