    Thumbs up Joshua Tree National Park March 20 & 21

    We will try again, and hopefully the weather will cooperate this time.

    This is now just a 1 day trip, Saturday only. Meet 9:45 at Cottonwood Vistors Center

    On Saturday we plan to do Pinkham Canyon and Thermal Canyon. Afterward, we plan to do some other sight seeing in the park that may include a short hike and a few other side trails...or not depending on how the day goes. This is supposed to be an easy to slightly moderate run that should be doable by all. Here's the review from Dirtopia:
    The Pinkham Canyon Trail is a relatively easy 4WD trail that is very scenic.

    It starts at the Pinto Basin Road also called El Dorado Mine Road just opposite the Cottonwood Visitor Center. The route progresses from a graded road to a formed trail into the sloping bajada. From then on you move past the sandy Mojave yuccas towards the Cottonwood Mountains from where you can view the Monument Mountain.

    After this section, the trail takes you into the Pinkham Canyon Wash where the surface is loose and sandy. This is not too difficult to navigate with your 4WD.

    You come across a side trail which leads you to the Thermal Canyon. This is one of the most scenic sites within the Joshua Tree National Park.

    The end of this trail is close to I-10.

    No Problem. I'm from Orange County and will go regardless. I'll either go by myself, or with anyone else who wants to tag along (up to 10 vehicles or so).
