Weekend Recap - Joshua Tree


All I can say about this weekend and Joshua Tree was that I was in my element. Driving into the park was beautiful enough, but at one point, when we got to the top of a climb, we were rewarded with the most awesome view of the park (see picture). When we went down, and went for a short walk, I looked around and suddenly felt it: I'm somewhere I could find peace somehow. The setting was so serene, and I felt that the people around were open and friendly, never judgmental, and certainly carried no attitude.

I came away totally in love with the place, brimming with fueled excitement about climbing, and proudly branded with bruises and cuts (They build character.) from my attempts to scale the rocks.

I am already looking forward to the next time I get to camp out here again. This place is definitely right up there in the ranks of Sequoia.

=========================================

I should mention too that I have crossed another movie off my list. In a futile attempt to wait out the traffic coming back from Joshua Tree, Marc and I decided to stop at Covina to catch Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. My review? Pretty good, considering it's a sequel. I found it cute and funny, although the story line could have been better. But it doesn't really matter, one syllable said in a British accent, and I'm hooked. They could be cussing the whole time, for all I care. Oh, and of course I had to give my support to my two boyfriends, Hugh and Colin. Please don't tell them though.
