07-May-2013 -- Back in California ! I planned this trip to attend the IARS (iars.org) annual meeting in San Diego to present results of our team. As usual I saved a few days after the meeting for a small round trip in southern California. This was the perfect occasion for visiting the Joshua Tree National Park that was on our wish list for a long time. This CP is located in the Park and we add the pleasure of the confluence visit to the discovery of the desertic wonders of the park.

As described by previous visitors the CP is 1.6 km away from the Belle campground, access to the point took us 30 minutes hiking uphill and trying to avoid the thorny bushes on our way. We had no difficulty to zero the point.

Joshua Tree National Park is a wonderful place for all hikers, rock climbers and confluence visitors ; go there, you'll enjoy it !
