Went out to Jumbo Rocks Campgrounds at Joshua Tree for a day with Lakai and some of the Active fam from each shop who were slangin’ the most Lakai shoes (and who’s schedule permits). The weather was not too hot, not too cold. In fact, it was the best place to be. Isolated from society and no cell phone service (a lot of #latergrams.) We were climbing up on some rough rocks but well worth the view in the end. The sights were unbelievable, sorta like being at California Adventure in Disneyland… but the real thing! It was a great getaway before the Holiday season. Thank you BK & Culver for letting me tag along and document this!!!
Pit stop to the Cabazon Dinosaurs. Active San Dimas‘ Denzel White pulls a fast one for the instagram. Too bad these dinosaurs are destined for extinction.

Ended up playing a few desert games. But ended up with a tie between to groups. We had to “Chug-o-War”, keep drinks in our mouths while pulling rope with one arm.
A tarantula encounter. Everyone was so about it.
Sharp Shootin’ Sallie
afterwards, we wandered off for exploration before sundown, went on a hike and rock climb.
Found some gnarly climbage.
four of us separated from the group. here are the others across from us on top of those rocks.

Right before sunset.
The next thing you know… a rosy glow appeared in the sky, reflecting gnarly on the rocks. This happend for about 5 minutes before it went back. Took as many photos as I could when it was happening.
back to the camping ground.

Some late night horse shoe action
how many points is that?!
a friendly stranger we met along while hiking brought over his banjo and harmonica. we were jamming it.
that’s how the night ended.
’til comes the mornin’… someone’s car alarm that never went off woke me up. Maybe it was a good thing, so I wouldn’t miss this epic sunrise.
Kellen slept on the rocks and then some…
The Sun has risen.
First ringer ever.
Rick & Justin in the distance.
That’s a wrap!!!
