OK, there wasn't actually any paddling. But I just had a great Thanksgiving weekend out in Joshua Tree and wanted to share some photos. We were there for the climbing but the weather wasn't so cooperative. We had a couple days of decent weather and then it got cold. Then it got wet - first a little rain which
ended our climbing early on Saturday, then it turned to snow as we drove out of the park. When it cleared up over night we thought we were OK but we got woken up early Sunday by more rain. Lots more rain. So we ended the weekend early and headed home to watch football.
The climbing we did get in was a combination of fun a
nd frustration. Frustrating in that I haven't climbed since last Thanksgiving and I wasn't very sharp. But ultimately fun in that it is always good to get up on the rock and Joshua Tree is one of my favorite places on earth. If only it had a river running through it I would never leave.
