finally we arrived in california.
driving through the crazy hot and desolate mohave desert, we headed into joshua tree national park.
it was like being on another planet, those crazy trees!
it was also fitting that u2 came on just as we entered the park, since they named one of their records after the place.
after exploring the park, we continued on our journey and spent the night in palm springs.
a gorgeous oasis and a great break from the heat. we spent most of our time at the best western hotel pool (a great place to stay in palm springs if you don't want to break the bank), but we did run to ralph's for some provisions.
wearing: american eagle shorts, forever 21 tank and victoria's secret pink blue jays tee, pendleton bag, minnetonka moccasins and oakley frogsters
