TheMAN and I had a few hours to kill — sacrificing only a few hours of sleep — while in the desert. We made our way to Joshua Tree for a look at the landscape.
While we were out and about, we caught a glimpse of this guy returning from an overnight trek in the backcountry. It was about 8 AM and nearing 100 degrees already. The heat didn’t seem to be a problem. Maybe it was the result of being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of life but this guy was really laid back. So much so, that I’ve already looked up the requirements for getting a backcountry permit in Joshua Tree.
Of course, first things 1st: Clouds Rest is already permitted for early July. I can’t wait.
