Daydream in the desert at Joshua Tree National Park
Daydream in the desert at Joshua Tree National Park, and all your inhibitions will settle onto the ground to be recycled by our glorious mother earth…
Or that’s at least how I felt went I went there.
We stopped by Joshua Tree National Park on the way to our friend’s wedding, which was the main focal point of our trip. Aren’t her photos below breathtaking?
We like to make a 3-4 day trip out of friends’ weddings that are a plane ride away from home because why not?
We get the best of the both worlds that way– seeing our friends get married and exploring a new place such as Joshua Tree National Park.
Joshua Tree National park is where “two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together […]. A fascinating variety of plants and animals make their homes in a land sculpted by strong winds and occasional torrents of rain.” #truth
The vastness caught me a little off guard sometimes making me channel my inner older Korean woman (aka ajjuma) and rest with a serious face and hand on my hip.
But I got to embrace and hang out with this epic tree that became a part of the landscape after it fell, which showed that there is no ending or beginning in the cycle of life. It’s all one continuous journey– DEEP!
“Dark night skies, a rich cultural history, and surreal geologic features add to the wonder of this vast wilderness in southern California.”
Besides Burning Man, this was the only desert I’ve been to. Surreality at its finest, right?
It was the perfect place to get lost in my head.
I felt so small in the midst of the vast landscape yet large enough to be supported by this solid mass of earth cradling me with each step I took.
How do you feel about a nice daydream in the desert at Joshua Tree National Park?
