Alethia's First Camping Trip
We headed back out to Joshua Tree for a camping trip a little bit ago after quite some time. We hadn't been camping since our trip to Idyllwild back in April. That may not sound too bad to you, but after nearly five years of camping on average once a month, we felt incredibly cooped up. So Alethia finally had her first chance to enjoy the pleasures of camping at the ripe old age of 3-1/2 months.
She spent a good chunk of our time out there like this:
Preparing for the trip took much longer than we had anticipated, so we didn't actually get to the park until late Saturday and we left on Sunday. There were tons of people in the park - more than I remember ever seeing (in terms of cars driving through, at least), and it is amazing we found a campsite. Granted, it was probably the worst site in the whole park, with no flat ground for sleeping on, but it was our sloped patch of dirt, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We took some a number of pictures of Alethia while we were out, and since she is so incredibly cute I will post a number of them. Here they are in no particular order:
Of course I took some landscape shots too, and here are a few of them for your viewing pleasure.
