On October 28th-30th, Joshua Tree National Park is hosting a new event called the Night Sky Festival.  In the past, the Park has organized “Star Parties” to share the beautiful night sky with visitors and residents interested in learning more about astronomy.  The Park offers a dark sky unspoiled by artificial light and atmospheric pollutants.

In celebration of the 100th birthday of the National Park Service, Joshua Tree National Park is organizing a special event to celebrate the beauty and mystery of the night sky.  Special guests include cultural speakers, astronomers, scientists, night-sky enthusiasts, artists, volunteers, junior rangers and visitors.

More details will be posted on the Joshua Tree National Park website.  Click here for details.

Lynn Bremner is the author of DesertRoadTrippin.com, a blog about desert road trips and tips. She started the blog after moving to Indio, CA where she now resides. Now a true desert dweller, Lynn has added in some of her own views on desert living. The heat does not keep her indoors in the summertime. She is out running, golfing or taking short day trips to some of the local points of interest. After years of traveling along the dusty, desert trails with her father, she has come to appreciate the beauty and solitude of the desert landscape. Her father’s passion for prospecting, desert lore and exploring the desert parks took their family to many interesting places, mostly in California, Nevada and Arizona. Lynn now writes about her desert road trips and intertwines a little bit of desert living into the mix.
