Joshua Tree tips

Joshua Tree sunset

A friend of mine is going to Joshua Tree soon and asked me for some hiking tips. So here is a list of our favorite hikes (in order):
1. Split Rock Loop (2.5 miles)
2. Ryan Mountain (3 miles, lots of elevation change)
3. Fortynine Palms Oasis Trail (3 miles, lots of elevation change but not as much as Ryan Mountain)
4. Barker Dam Loop (1.5 miles)
5. Hidden Valley Loop (1 mile)

The two without loop in the name are out and backs.

Arch Rock and Cholla Cactus Garden are must sees but not really hikes.

Some longer ones we didn’t go on:
Lost Horse Mine (6.2 miles)
Willow Hole (7.2 miles)
Panorama Loop (6.6 miles)
Lost Palms Oasis (7.5 miles)
Stubbe (Stubby) Springs Loop (12.8 miles)

Best food was at Joshua Tree Saloon and 29 Palms Inn. Pie for the People was also good (but no beer).

Today’s photo comes from The Getty Center in Los Angeles, an art museum that features as much, if not more, art in the architecture, grounds, and views than in the paintings and other works of art in the rooms.
