Joshua Tree National Park 2017 - Day 2

Yes, my very first experience at "desert hiking"...woot! Today I did some "on-trail" solo hiking and drove through the park from the west entrance to the north entrance. At the Visitor Center in Joshua Tree, I spoke with a park ranger who highlighted spots on a map that I wanted to check out. He also recommended I drive through the park from the west entrance to the north entrance. So glad I did....it was such a gorgeous day! The west entrance is 10 miles from the visitor center and I purchased a 7-day vehicle pass for $25. Enjoy some photos I took of my day .
