If you haven’t been able to tell, Spencer and I are HUGE fans of National Parks. So, it’s no surprise that we carved out an afternoon during our most recent trip to California to spend a few hours in Joshua Tree. Of course, I would suggest spending more than the 4 hours we did (we’re camping next time!) but if you have an afternoon while in Palm Springs it’s only a short hour ride away. The scenery is gorgeous and very much other worldly. You feel like you’re on a different planet! Totally worth doing if you’re tired of laying by the pool – yes, that sometimes is exhausting (ha!).
