People who work for schools have the life. Wes has been on summer break for a few weeks, and has spent many days hiking and climbing in Joshua Tree, the San Bernardino National Forest, and Red Rock State Park.
Anza-Borrego State Park is the quintessential desert experience, offering a variety of flora and fauna to view, and the unique option to camp anywhere within the park. It is home to the indigenous California Fan Palm and the majestic Bighorn sheep.
Joshua Tree National Park will be too hot to visit in the next few months, so get your trips in now. Our favorite campground is Jumbo Rocks, which offers beautiful views of the desert, close encounters with the iconic monzogranite boulders, and a quick hike to the famous Skull Rock.
Red Rock is conveniently close to the exciting city of Las Vegas. It is a wonderful getaway if you’ve had enough of the lights, or a great place to explore if you have avoided the city because you thought it only offered lights. The park offers a variety of activities, good for a variety of interests and skill levels.
