Joshua Tree + Cabazon Dinosaurs

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Last Thursday, Mom and I decided to make a day trip out to Joshua Tree National Park. We'd both heard so much about it - and we had the time to burn - that we thought that it'd be a fun stop during our Palm Springs adventure.

The drive over there was a sight in and of itself. I'd never seen so many windmills in my life (especially ones of that size). AND the hills were also gorgeous.

After about an hour's drive, we finally hit the national park. To be honest, we actually didn't get very far into the park, but we saw exactly what we wanted to see. The rock formations are gorgeous, and so are the trees. It's amazing how different and vast God's creation is across the country, especially in comparison to the rolling hills I'm used to in Tennessee.

While we were on our way out, I remembered that there were some dinosaur statues in the area. The Cabazon Dinosaurs were some that I'd seen on Pinterest, so I told my iPhone to take us there.

I'll be honest, the area is kind of sketch, so we were in and out of there really quick. However, it was hilarious to take pictures by the giant Brontosaurus, AKA Little Foot for all of you who watched "The Land Before Time." :) (Also, the magazine I write for is doing a Dinosaur-themed issue, so I thought it was fitting.)

This is what you do when you realize you're in Jurassic Park.
