What a wonderful overnight stay here in the desert in Southern California. We approached from the south. With a call to recreation.gov we had learned that several sites at Cottonwood Cottonwood Campground in Joshua Tree National Park were available for Thursday night but all sixty-two sites were reserved for the weekend. The other option was BLM dispersed camping south of the park entrance. We opted for one night on A-15 in the campground, a fabulous view out of our door although actually a little too short for our combo. It was an incredible place for sitting and enjoying the landscape and playing with the new camera as the sun set, the stars came out, the full moon rose and in the morning as the moon set and the sun crept over the horizon. While today was still new we hiked out of the campground to Cottonwood Wash. Wow! It’s dry now but obviously water flowed here recently. The park recently received two inches of rain in one day causing flooding and road damage, and obviously water flow through this wash!
