I went into Joshua Tree one last time for this trip. After giving myself a tour while there was light, I was able to find a good spot for these night-time photos. During that time, of course, I took tons more than I expected during the day and sunset.
I also am adding a photo of a creature I got to encounter while I was there. Which is the little additional photo added. Joshua tree is full of life and though some may look scary, all critters were actually very nice and kept their distance just the same.
Though, while in the almost pitch black of night under the stars, you still get that feeling someone is watching you. Mostly I think the bats were the hardest part because they are not afraid to swoop right next to your head to get some bugs. We had a mutual agreement for them not to run into me.
