We have plans to take mini road trips as often as possible for the next few months. We bought an old Jeep Cherokee that hopefully will make these little dreams a reality. On our list: Grand Canyon, Oregon, Utah, Colorado. It would be amazing to go across country, but I'm not sure that's entirely possible this year.
Our trial run was Joshua Tree National Park on Saturday. I did some research before we left, but the park is massive and I knew we wouldn't have enough time to see all of the natural beauty. The rock formations (and climbing them) were our favorite. Nate has a fear of heights but he climbed higher than I could stomach so I was on my own for a bit! I climbed up to a flat bluff, and practiced mindfulness. All I could hear was the wind, and for the first time in months, I was truly present and at peace sitting there by myself. I would definitely recommend visiting if you're a nature lover. I wouldn't even consider myself much of an outdoors person but even I loved every minute of this. There truly is something for everyone.
Sometimes we don't need therapy. We just need to get outside of ourselves. Get off the beaten path.
Joshua Trees are big!
