Ben, Josh, & I drove out to Joshua Tree for a short venture in camping. Ben took Jane’s, his girlfriend, dog Tiger Lily with us, who protected us from either coyotes or wood rats; we’ll never know. We camped out at Jumbo Rocks & took pictures of the stars, but the brightness of the moon made it difficult to capture the Milky Way. While the guys pitched up the tents, I made curry masala with basmati rice & grilled vegetable medely. Josh got to scratch off an item off his California bucket-list before flying out to Florida, so it was all-in-all, a great trip!
