Joshua Tree Hike

In the it's almost too late to blog about this file, when we were in California in December we went for a hike in Joshua Tree National Park.  It was a nice, yet pretty windy day, and really busy full of people.  Some of the trails we wanted to hike were closed, so we picked a 10km loop called Lost Horse Mine.  It was basically a couple of kilometres up Lost Horse Mountain (summit 5278 feet) to an old mine.  Then down a steep, windy trail off the back.  It ended with probably about 4 kilometres through a sandy wash back down at the bottom.  Here are some pictures.

While hiking is great and can get you off the beaten path, I really want to ride up through the park and back around to Palm Springs.  We didn't bring our bikes on that trip, but next time!
