Along with her recommendation to immediately head into Hidden Valley (to beat the crowds), the ranger at the gate also advised us where to find a Joshua tree in bloom (it’s still too early for most of them), so we head into the Jumbo Rocks Campground in search of site 37.
Sure enough, across from site 37 a Joshua Tree just coming into bloom. The tree is growing up against a large boulder and a quick climb takes me almost right up to the blossoms.
