Joshua Tree - A survival guide

Went camping with some pals this weekend. Figured it might be a good idea to post some things I've learned during my many travels through the desert.

And so, I bring you, Skorzy, Niko and Amsel's Guide to Desert Hikes!

(PS: this is our album cover)

Make sure that if you leave camp you bring all the food. Leave none for the slackers who stayed behind. (oops)

Stay hydrated

Obey posted signs

Respect park property

If taking photos, be sure to check that your equipment is in working order

Beware of local wildlife (Return of the desert cougar, and this time it's brought a desperate housewife with it OH CRAP!)
Photobucket

Always be aware of possible shelters in case of inclement weather (but check for desert bears first, I hear they can be fierce when prodded)
Photobucket

Dress appropriately

And lastly (and this one is serious...no really) in case of an emergency clothing repair, Joshua trees and other yuccas can be used to repair clothing. Simply grab a spine, whittle away the green leaving the "needle", let dry, and sew!

Stay tuned for more photos!
