We checked into the campground in the middle of 29 Palms, CA. It was kind of run down but we did the best with what we had. I wanted to go swimming badly. The pool was huge, stunk of chlorine but was empty. I swam for a hour and then realized we didn’t bring towels. I toughed it out back to the motorhome. It was about 45F out. In the morning we explored Joshua Tree with Dad for a while. We loved climbing and rock scrambling. There were rocks everywhere! The called this Skull Rock. It looked like a giant ape skull! It took a while to climb up. You can see Es head to the right on my feet in the photo! He was almost up! Sometimes we would get stuck! Now how do I get off this silly rock!E opted to grab Dad’s hand and JUMP! Mom wasn’t silly enough to climb places she couldn’t get out of. Me on the other hand. I was all over! The trees were amazing. I see why there is a national park here. Santa found us on Christmas. The elves toilet papered the tree and caused some mischief. We had a fun Christmas morning. We each got some arts and crafts, legos and Nerf guns. We spent most of the day outside t the campground shooting Nerf darts at each other at point blank range! Obviously I loved the lego set E got me!
