Today we drive further into Joshua Tree to the Ryan Peak trail. We’re doing another hike, but I’m feeling growing urges to climb, for whatever reason.
The summit provides great views over both the Colorado and Mojave deserts, but it’s hard to take your attention off of the alluring stacks of rock in Hidden Valley.
The spaces are big in this park. Today we’re exploring the area, and easily end up driving 70 miles. We’ll have to plan outings carefully to avoid unnecessary driving.
