Two weeks ago, when our friends Janice and Andy were in town visiting, we took a day trip out to Joshua Tree National Park. This has been on my list of places to go since we moved to California and it didn't disappoint!
I'd recommend a visit there if you're ever out west! It's so amazingly beautiful! I can't wait to head out there again sometime for more exploring...

|Matt found some "gold"! Here he is giving it the old bite test.|
