Monkeying around in Joshua Tree

After Big Sur, we continued south along the coast. We stopped by San Luis Obispo for beers with friends and live music, Santa Barbara for some downtown vibes and Ventura for family time and much needed showers. Then off to Joshua Tree. The first night was spent outside the park, on BLM land. We woke up early the following morning, in search of our first climbing routes.

While staying in Hidden Valley, our campsite neighbors were four Canadians who drove 21 hours straight from Vancouver to climb at Joshua Tree. On their rest day, they took a side trip to TJ. Rad kids.
