Joshua Tree

I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I had a fun-filled weekend with quite a bit of hiking and swimming. A great weekend!

I took a trip out to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park. I haven't been to this park in quite a while. We did several short hikes, my favorite of which was a hike to "Mastodon Peak". Cool name, too. The view from the top of the rocks was unreal. You could see for many many miles in all directions, yet not a human to be seen. It was awesome!

We did a fair bit of bouldering and scrambling over rocks. I had a great time pretending to be a prehistoric hunter hiding in the rocks waiting for game to pass by on the flats. But I have a terrible fear of heights, I'm a total wimp when I am four feet off the ground! Eek!

Unfortunately, I dropped my camera on Friday and it broke! Darn it. So no photos of my hikes. I stole some photos off the internet for you though.

I also dined well on my trip. At a french restaurant we ordered the local free-range bunny rabbit. I had never tasted rabbit before. It was GOOD. Kinda like chicken, haha.

Have a great day!

  1. I love wild rabbit, it's one of our favorite meals around here and easily had, considering the number of bunnies running around this area.... I love it in a stew with some apple slices or cider, carrots and other veggies, a bit spicy mustard and if you're feeling indulgent, a splash of cream and fresh watercress on top. Fried rabbit heart is great too.
