Joshua Tree National Park -- The Perfect Destination for Thanksgiving. It facilitated beautiful hiking, which led us into a hiking marathon and in turn avoided the overfill on food that tends to happen during the holidays. More importantly it allowed us to walk around with even more gratitude for the great outdoors. The two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park to create stunning hikes. November is a really good time to go because the weather is perfect for hiking, there was a slight chill and it definitely wasn't too hot. Click the link below to learn more.
