We (The Adventure Squad) woke up bright and early at 6am on this beautiful sunny Sunday morning to head to Sturtevant Falls since this place is known to get really crowded, especially on the weekends.
We were fortunate to have found parking at a lot closest to the trailhead, as opposed to parking further away along the bottom of the mountain (which is common considering the popularity of this trail).
“Come with us to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower in Joshua Tree!”
“But I’m not ready. I don’t have anything packed. This is too last minute! I didn’t plan for this.”
“What do you have to do on a Friday night that’s more important than THIS?”

I wake up from my nap and I’m lying in my tent with my journal beside me. I pull back the covers and I am now looking up at the clear sky, which is covered with stars. You could see each star sparkling on its own- this secluded campground is hidden far away from the city. I don’t remember the last time I stargazed in a night like this without the pollution and distractions of the world. It’s absolutely beautiful.
