Red Rock Canyon SP-Spring 2016

After a long drive from Northern California. We made it into Red Rock Canyon State Park in the late afternoon and luckily we were able to get one of the last remaining campsites. It turned out that the park was holding Easter Morning Sunrise services and we had happened into one of the busiest weekends of the year.

I had selected RRCSP thinking that it would be difficult to make it to Joshua Tree National Park in the daylight and it looked like an interesting place.  The park campground was full but the campsites are dispersed enough to provide privacy from each other.  The site we were able to get was right on the loop road but we were able to position the truck to provide a buffer for the sitting area.  The camp area quieted down and we slept well.

Easter morning the camp area was filled with the activity of a sunrise hike to the cliffs above.  We opted for a quite, quick breakfast so we could explore some of the 4WD areas in the park and then make our way to Joshua Tree National Park.

I’m sure we will make our way back to this park and explore the area a little more.
