OUR LAST DAYS IN CALIFORNIA
Ellen and Rory moved up the coast to LA to meet up with some long lost college friends. We still had a couple of days in Doheny State Park and we used them to explore the harbor and bike path in Dana Point.
The bike path from the campground followed the commuter train tracks to the pier in San Clemente, aproximantely 10 miles round trip.
One last sunset @ Doheny State Beach followed by a return trip to Joshua Tree NP for more hiking in the desert. This time we camped at Black Rock Canyon on the northwest side of the park. We hiked the Panarama Loop trail to Warren's view.
There was snow here and there on the trail...
And excellent views along the way.
No trip to Joshua Tree is complete without a visit to the coffee shop and a New York style pizza place ...
We also were able to meet up with our friend Ellen from Buffalo. We had so much fun over dinner with her friends Susan, Roger and George that we forgot to take pictures so you will have to trust us that it was fun and great to spend time with folks from back home.
