Joshua Tree National Park Day Trip

Joshua Tree National Park Day Trip

  We couldn’t fit our 33ft motorhome in a campground at Joshua Tree National park so we stayed at Palm Springs Thousand Trails. (more on Palm Springs Thousand Trails later)

Kevin and I went into the Black Rock Nature Center and bought our America the Beautiful pass. We also got our National Park Passport book stamped at Black Rock Nature Center.

We drove the scenic drive route in the park.

Joshua Tree National Park attracts the rock climbing crowd. These brave folks are going rock climbing.

Silver Belle Mine

Make sure you stop along the road and read the information about the area that’s how we found the Silver Belle Mine.

Joshua Tree National Park is a place we need more than one day to see.  It was a good scouting trip for more visits to Joshua Tree National Park.

Happy Camping!

  1. I lived in the little town of Joshua Tree for a few years and it is still one of my favorite places. Next time you go there are some good boondocking spots off Sunland Road that puts you very close to the park entrance. Nice pics – love those outcroppings!
