Los Angeles

I got to the hostel in LA around 8pm, after spending the whole day in Joshua tree. I hadn’t booked into the Hostel but had called ahead to make sure they had bed for me. The hostel I was staying at was called The Anderson Estates and was the cheapest I could find in LA …

Joshua Tree

I got in pretty late to the BLM land just outside of Joshua Tree National Park where I was staying that night. The land is accessed via some quite rutted and bumpy dirt roads, but I managed to navigate my way through (I’m glad there was no rain) and find a spot for the night. …
