We headed back to the car to get going. At the campsite I had to take an improvisational shower since there was no running water. All the water attracted a load of killer bees so I kind of just stood behind this big rock naked for ten minutes while the water dried off and the bees left. It was really bad. But this kind of thing is fun once it's over.
On our way out We stopped at a joshua tree "jungle" and a cholla garden right as the moon was coming up. After leaving the national park we stopped at a town called Indio to eat some food. The town was sort of bare, but I got a really good My Little Pony backpack at the dollar store.
Headed back to the Los Angeles airport and off to Newark back home.
The desert really is a beautiful place, even though it seems prickly and uninviting it has beautiful fauna and the landscapes are just absurd. The rock formations are amazing. It's really interesting to see how the geo-science works its way into this. One of the rocks was split into a grid. And there was a continuous line running through many of the rocks. Half the time I was in Joshua Tree I thought I was on Mars.
