Another quick note, I went on two hikes in Joshua Tree National Park this week. Both trail heads have large and easy to read signs that say NO DOGS and even explain why. On both hikes there were people hiking with dogs, off leash. When I stopped and pointed this out to them, one said, “Thank you,” and the other said, “Oh.” Neither made an effort to leash their dog or turn around.
Visitors, please have some basic respect for the area, the basic rules, and the people that live here.
No matter what happens in this area, I love living here, and the omnipotent element of the nature will always be amazingly beautiful.
It’s a good portion of the people that visit that are ugly.
