Day 9 | Phoenix to Joshua Tree to Palm Springs
We're back in California and enjoying the desert! We left Phoenix and it's disappointing attractions and drove a straight line west to Palm Springs. Our initial itinerary had been to head south for another night, but we've decided we're just a little too vanilla for some areas of America - and that maybe some areas of America aren't ready for our outfits. I never would have thought my mustard coloured tights or Joshua's pale blue pants would draw such attention. A stop in at Joshua Tree National Park made it clear that we only just scratched the surface, an hour in the morning sun left us overheated and grappling for the water bottle. We might head to the north of the park sometime over the next day or so, with a full water bottle and lots of sunscreen!
