Event Description

 

JOSHUA TREE FOR NEW YEARS….COME CELEBRATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!     THIS IS A CAR CAMP BRING WHAT YOU NEED TO BE COMFORTABLE. This does not mean you have to sleep in your car.  Car camping, ... it goes by names, and the experience varies widely, but the use of motor vehicles to get to a camp site is popular in many parts of the world. Unlike more traditional "walk in" camping or backpacking, car camping allows you to bring more equipment, and focus on enjoying the site, cook-outs, day hikes, and other outdoor activities.    WE WILL HAVE A POTLUCK ON SATURDAY NIGHT.    I will add up to 20 people the cost of $5.00 per person, once signed up I will email you information on where to send payment. If I do not receive payment you will be removed from the trip list.  I will not refund money after October 31, 2011.  Come and have fun, go hiking or rockingclimbing or sit and do nothing the fun you want you have is up to you.....  NO PLUS ONE OR BRINGING FRIEND everyone must sign up for themselves, NO PETS.. Campsites We will be in group sites; parking is limited to 14 vehicles so carpooling will be necessary. There is no water at the campsite . Pit toilets are available.   Water is available at the Oasis Visitor Center, Indian Cove Ranger Station, West Entrance, and Black Rock and Cottonwood campgrounds. THERE IS NO WATER so you need to bring your own. Quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Food-storage containers capable of preventing access by wildlife are required. Any scented or odorous items must be similarly stored. Campfires: All vegetation in the park is protected. If you want to make a campfire, bring your own firewood. Fire grates are provided. PLEASE BRING FIRE WOOD, it will be cold at night   Boy Scout Hiking and Equestrian Trail
The trail extends eight miles from the Indian Cove backcountry registration board through a sandy wash, climbing through steep mountains and rocky canyons as it winds around the western edge of the Wonderland of Rocks to the Keys West backcountry registration board. You must park and register at a backcountry registration board if you will be out overnight
  IT IS UP TO YOU TO DECIDED WHAT YOU WANT TO DO ONCE YOU GET THERE.   I will be hiking but that does not mean you have to do the same thing.  If you just want to come out and relax that is just fine.    THERE IS A FEE TO GET INTO THE PARK ITSELF

Thanks to Laura and "Gar Bear" for organizing the trip! I enjoyed myself and enjoyed seeing everyone. FYI, it was a good thing I left when I did. Margaret's plane was diverted to Ontario so I was able to pick her up on my way home!
