Joshua Tree NP - Split Rock Picnic and Skull Rock Trail

Entrance sign to Joshua Tree National ParkWe left the park to get some gas (had to show our pay stub leaving and reentering the park). Then zoomed back in. It was getting late at this point and we knew our day time exploring would come to an end soon. We hadn't eaten yet (not even breakfast). It was around 2:30pm.

Our first stop was at a picnic ground called "Split Rock". Right across the road was another picnic area called "Live Oak". We just randomly picked a place and drove in. It was a bit crowded with cars but no one in sight. We saw picnic tables and a nice CLEAN outhouse. Then the trails.

Split Rock Picnic Area

There were trails that went just about everywhere. Again, we randomly picked one and started walking. I have to put here that I carried a "fanny pack" that held quite a bit of things like camera, first aid, sunscreen lotion and several bottles of water. It's pretty nifty!

We saw some folks rock climbing a vertical face. But for some reason, I got really hot and really aggravated. So we turned back to find shade and eat our lunch. Right under "Split Rock" is a cave that (by the looks of it) has been used for generations. You could probably have an entire tribe utilizing this cave as base camp.

Split Rock Cave

We were at a point where we weren't sure where to go next. We decided to check out Keys View. On the way we saw a spot called "Haunted Tunnels" or something so we just HAD to stop. So we did :) On the map it's called "Skull Rock" Well, we found neither a tunnel, a skull or anything remotely close to haunted. But we did find lots of .....
