Once we left Joshua Tree we made our way to the Trona Pinnacles. It was a great place to boondock for a few days. We enjoyed exploring the pinnacles and scrambling around to see them up close.
Our plan was to finish out the week parked at the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine. They have some great climbing routes and we really wanted to try our first multi pitch route there. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor and because of flash flood warnings all over Southern California we decided to play it safe and just drive through Death Valley and cross over in to Nevada.
We were able to find an RV park that we could get a 50% discount with our Passport America card. So we settled down at Nevada Treasure RV Resort for a few days and enjoyed full hook ups and an AMAZING hot tub all for 64 dollars total.
Red Rock National Conservation Area is a world famous climbing area and only 45 minutes from the RV park. While the weather is raining on our climbing parade it was still fun to drive through Red Rock and dream about the next time we will be there. I think I know where you’ll find us next winter.
We are preparing for our very first backpacking trip with Steve and Tess in St. George so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop by REI in Las Vegas. Is it bad that we spent the whole evening there instead of walking the strip? haha. Priorities.
Oakley and Ella are wondering when we are going back into the wild… They are not about the RV park life.
