I went to Joshua Tree National Park this weekend with Scott and Shanna for a short trip. It was my first time camping in the winter.
It got down to 32F in the evening and Shanna drove through a snow storm on her way out. Luckily, the snow didn’t hit our part of the park. Even though it was cold, once we got inside our tents the wind was blocked so it felt ok. Plus we have down sleeping bags.
It’s a smaller park with a lot of short trails that we went on on the day we arrived (it’s a 2.5-3 hour drive from LA).
In the morning we went up the Ryan Mountain Trail, which is steep, but short and well maintained. Because it we’re going in the winter, it pretty empty the whole time we were there.
Scott made ribs again and we tried pizza Pringles. They tasted mostly like paprika.
