It was really hot in Joshua Tree, and when Marissa forced me out of bed I thought it must have been about 10am. In fact, it was 5.30am. The sun was out, and had been for hours, so we decided to make the most of the day and head out to the Joshua Tree National Park before the extreme heat revealed itself.
After getting over the initial shock of how early Riss had pulled me out of bed on our holiday, it was actually an amazing time to go and visit the park. The light was fantastic and there was nobody around apart from a few eager rock climbers.
Now, usually when people show me their holiday snaps of lanscapes they visited, I find it a real snore fest. But (maybe) I can get away with it? It really was beautiful!
