We arrived in Vegas.. far to late for the crazyness and then we left super early so I didn't take any pictures (so sorry). My next big stop was in Palm Springs. This is a view from the front of the condo where we stayed.
I am officially in love with palm trees and I have decided that they could join me in the mountains any day.
The next stop was Joshua Tree. At first I was a little disappointing.. and I will tell you why..
I thought "Joshua Tree" implied one "Tree" that was a special tree.
I was a little ticked when I payed 15 dollars to see millions of these "Joshua Tree"'s that I had seen the whole drive to "Joshua Tree".
After having a little giggle about the irony, we went for a hike.
and I did my own version. I am super adventurous.
Then we made our way to Laguna Beach. I had to see the ocean on this trip so this was a non negotiable item on my list.
But the water was cold
I mean really cold.
(Duh, it is the ocean Amy!) But still, I had an idea in my head about what the temperature should be and it did not live up to my expectations.
Then we traveled to Anaheim to watch the Ducks and Wings battle in a great hockey game.
The PEAK of my trip was definitely Joshua Tree. I had an awesome time hiking and snapping lots of photos. I also got to tan while I walked (I like multitasking while on vacay).
The PIT of my trip was leaving. I was soooo sad when I had to board my plane to go home. I was even more upset when there was a foot of snow waiting for me.
However, I still have another week off so I plan on using it wisely!! Starting with some blog stalking.. I feel completely out of the loop.
I hope everyone had a great week and a wonderful weekend!
