49 Palms Hike with my Family

Barker Dam, too
January 8-9, 2011
My sister Kristine and Brother-in-law Joe rented a bungalow out in the town of Joshua Tree for the week, and for the weekend Todd and I, Mom and Dad, Aunt Shirley and Cherise, and Kristine's HS friend Garrett joined them.  On Saturday I took everyone on a hike out to 49 Palms Oasis.  Afterwards we all gathered at the bungalow and had a yummy Mexican feast!  On Sunday Mom, Dad, Kristine, and I went into the main part of the park and explored the area near Hidden Valley and hiked the Barker Dam Trail.  We had a lot of fun :)
