Day 1 - Joshua Tree camping was full. Went to a well known BLM owned dry lake bed that has open camping and some two track trails around it and a “sand hill”. Took an afternoon ride and then a nap after installing a battery to power the van’s fan.

Day 2 - Morning ride around the BLM land before heading into Joshua Tree.

Day 2 cont - Drove into Joshua Tree and parked at the top of one of the longer dirt roads. The road was said to be maybe passable all the way out to the south end of the park. Turns out it was! Saw many jeeps, some stuck cars and no other bikes. Most of it was fast, flowy, sandy two track through Joshua Trees. Then the end was a canyon wash that had some rocky and really sandy bits…nothing too challenging.
