If you ever get the chance go to Joshua Tree, go.
It is otherworldly, peaceful, serene and dangerous.
When we first entered the park, it felt like we were going through a construction site with piles of nondescript rocks everywhere, albeit they were huge piles of rocks.
But then you encounter rocks that look soft and fluffy from afar, surrounded by cactus that look like they can destroy you.
We didn't hike, as we had two small children with us, but we scrambled over rocks and explored to our hearts content.
Do you want to touch it?
