Spur-of-the-Moment Camping Trip

Spontaneous trips are the best, especially when camping and photography are involved! This past weekend, my boyfriend, Cam, and I decided to go camping in Joshua Tree National Park…such a gorgeous place! Cam just bought himself the same camera I have (Nikon d5100) so we turned the trip into a photography journey.

We stayed at Black Rock Canyon Campground for the first time; definitely a recommendation. The site is filled with Joshua trees, and has tons of stunning hiking trails, so, lots of great photo opps! We chose to hike the Nature trail loop of 1.3 miles…we took so many awesome pictures (around 700 combined), that the short hike took over 3 hours! The weather was absolutely perfect, the sky bright blue, and the scenery absolutely drop-dead gorgeous! ~Kat (Pics by Kat)

    You two are so lucky to be living close to so many incredible natural places. We visited Joshua Tree many moons ago, and your post made me want to head back soon. Thank you for sharing!
