Barker Dam Trail in the morning

Hiking to Barker Dam

We woke up at 5AM and drove from Sheep Pass to catch the sunrise at Barker Dam Trail, which had a small foreign-looking reservoir within the Wonderland of Rocks in Joshua Tree National Park.

A sleepless night at Black Rock Campground

We camped at Black Rock campground about 3-4 times since it is the most convenient campground at Joshua Tree. With its proximity to the nearest town (about 5 minutes away), and with running water, it is easily the best pick if this is the first time you have ever camped in the desert! Even though […]
