As soon as I knew I would be in Southern California this summer, I decided to visit Joshua Tree National Park. From the first time that I saw those peculiar trees and funny shaped rocks many years ago, I knew I wanted to visit it one day. Arriving in the early afternoon, I first drove around all major sights before making the final decision where to be for the sunset.
