Every once in awhile you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, and a quick getaway is the ultimate cure.
Twice this year I chose Joshua Tree as my getaway. The first time was back in February and the second trip was just two weeks ago. I do recommend a visit when it’s not June, unless you enjoy 110 degree weather in the middle of the desert or just go outside at night.
What the heck is in the desert? I asked myself that same question, but I was initially inspired to visit from all the cool pics I saw on Instagram from a few people I follow. Joshua Tree looked so magical, especially at night. It is nature, so what’s not to like? Besides, it's only a 2 1/2 hour drive from San Diego, which makes it a nice, quick getaway.
A few years ago San Diego Magazine dubbed Joshua Tree as “The New Desert Getaway”, and now you can count me in on the bandwagon.
