When I was looking at the weather for Joshua Tree a month before our trip, the forecast was perfect; 70+degree, sunny, California weather. However, the week before we left, the weather completely changed; 15-20 degrees cooler, possible rain... Washington weather that I was hoping to escape!
As my boyfriend and I drove into the park, we were surrounded by dark clouds and were seriously thinking it might rain on us. Thankfully, there were only a few raindrops, and when it came time to meet up with Cece, Jose, and Daniel, the sun came out and the skies were clearing and it was beautiful!
It was still pretty cold, and the 19 mph winds were soo crazy! But we put up with it. After all, it's not everyday you get pictures taken in Joshua Tree (especially when you are an out-of-towner).
I've known Cece and Jose since high school, so it was great to be able to meet up with them again and hang out with this adorable family of three.
Their son, Daniel, celebrated his 6th birthday on this trip! They started the morning with Krispy Kreme donuts to celebrate, and then headed out to meet up with us to capture some sweet memories in Joshua Tree.
