Hello from Joshua Tree National Park! It was a LONG day yesterday getting here from Death Valley–we didn’t set up camp until after dark. Most people froze during the night (not me for once), but they’re a resilient group! This is at the trailhead of the Fortynine Palms Oasis trail. Behind me are some of the students I’m with listening to the geology professor who’s on the trip with us. This is SUCH a great group of students and faculty–it’s been a lot of fun asking questions and learning as we go!
