Up the use trail on the way back from Eagle Mtns HP.
Met a fine black chuckwalla just below Mastodon on a pleasant desert loop. Visited Malapai Hill after.
I spent 3 days hiking with Heather and then she went off to do 100+ miles on the PCT. I then spent 4 days bagging peaks solo. I made it to the top of Mastadon around 6:40am and it was nice to have the trail to myself. I then continued on across the valley to climb Eagle (my 100th USA P2k). Other things I climbed on this trip include the Kingston, Kelso Dunes highpoint, East Ord, Cady, Chemehuevi.
Summited alone but had a great hike to lost palms and bagged this short little peak for fun. Loved Joshua Tree. Hiked with Butch, Roxanne, and the wife.
Short and sweet, good views, fun scramble.
Took the kids and grandpa up this little jewel. Incredible wildflowers and wildlife. Completely different from the rest of the park i.e. Hidden Valley and environs. I saw my first desert tortoise here, as well as several chuckwallas. Great to make a look hike out of it.
A quick diversion on the way to the Eagle Mountains H.P.
Quick hike with fun scramble at the top, great summit views.
A fun peak to climb. I enjoyed the 3-mile loop trail as well. I saw a lot of lizards.
Great little peak
nice, quick trip.
Part of a day off from rock climbing. Took a tour of the southern part of the park, including this little gem. Good nature trail loop with lots of interpretive signs, and a very short, nice scramble to the top. Excellent and unique view of the San Jacento, the Santa Rosas, and the Salton Sea.
Nice short hike with great views at the top. I did a little veration on the last section to make it more fun! Its was around 95 degrees.
A lovely freezing cold christmas day in Joshua Tree. Loved it.
On the way out to Lost Palms Oasis, which nearly stayed lost for us. Fun scramble with Adam.
a cool trail to the Summit
We went up the Lost Palms Oasis Trail to the summit and followed the loop trail down.
Easy little hike would be nice for little kids. Fun lttle scramble at the end too.
Great little hike with a great view! Loved seeing wildflowers along the way... in December!
