Another great weekend at Joshua Tree! Because we were going to be having a fairly large group going this weekend, Mark drove up to the park early to reserve a couple of campsites. We actually stayed in the same campsite as in April along with the one next to it. Here is a list of who ended up coming:
Mark and Michelle Vander Pol
Mark and Rachael Vander Werf
Joel and Sarah Schreuder
Tyler and Tami Schemper (Friday night)
Luke and Jenny Varvel (Saturday night)
Walking in "The Hall of Horrors" on Saturday morning.

Brian brought a set of Bocce balls and playing around the campground was a blast! Here the guys are looking at somebody's errant toss.

There are a lot more photos, but this should give you a decent idea of our trip! Hope you enjoyed looking at them and next time you will have to join us!
