Joshua Tree A night at big rocks

Last thursday i headed to Joshua Tree National Park to meet up with my brother and a few friends for a camp out in the boulders at the camp ground know as Jumbo Rocks.

Over looking Jumbo Rocks campground.

Here is the description of the campground from

If Joshua Tree camping is on the mind, staying at Jumbo Rocks campground is a must! Family-friendly Jumbo Rocks campground is located just a short hike from Skull Rock, one of the coolest rock formations in the park. Jumbo Rocks campground is the biggest of all campgrounds in Joshua Tree National Park. Pick from 124 first-come, first-served sites that have picnic tables, fire rings, and pit toilets. Potable water is not a luxury at this campground, make sure to bring plenty, especially in the summer months!

Jumbo Rocks campground usually fills on weekend nights October through May and can be especially busy during holiday months. Remember, advance reservations are not accepted here! Try arriving on a weekday to have the best chance at grabbing a first-come, first-served site at this acclaimed campground.

There is no better place to press the reset button.

Inspiration is everywhere and as the light changes through out the day the whole park changes ending in a magical display of light on a jaw dropping larger than life landscape.

Make sure to pack a small pack and take a hike a little before sunset. Climb a ridge and some boulders and find yourself the perfect seat for one of the best light shows on earth!

There is so much to explore BUT i have two must do's while there. Check out Barker Dam & Key's View.

With so much to see, don't forget to get some climbing in!
Camp shenanigans!

Once the sun sets it's time to settle in for some campfire fun...

Remember in the desert the wind can whip up. Make sure to stake your tent down!

Thank you for checking out my photos. Good thing i was only there one night or this post might of been MUCH longer. I can not wait to get back to this place of magic.
