*Reminisce * Desert Camping Road Trip – 1 Year Ago Today

 So as I sit here watching Eat, Pray, Love something got me thinking. What was I doing around this time last year? Well a year ago today the hubby and I went on a 7 day road trip to some of the deserts in California and other locations. We camped at a different spot every night. I liked visiting all the places I had never been to in my home state, but hated the whole packing up every morning and then putting the tent up every night. That was a pain! Otherwise we had a great time on our trip.

Stops on our trips:

  • Jalama State Beach
  • Anza-Borrego State Park
  • Joshua Tree National Park
  • Salton Sea
  • Mojave Desert
  • Death Valley
  • Bristol Pine Forest

Most Memorable Moments

  • Flat tire in snow on the way home from Bristol Pines National Forest and our slow drive back home on a spare tire
  • The hubby’s rally car driving in our rented Toyota Hybrid
  • Ghost town supermarket in Joshua Tree
  • The crazy winds in the morning at Mojave Desert
  • The hubby’s ghetto garbage bag snow sled
  • Death Valley Hike around the volcano

Here are just a few pics of some of our campsites:
