on Sunday morning I woke up early picked up my same named companion (aka my best friend) and we drove to joshua tree national park. we hiked a couple hikes and saw lots of joshua trees. then we drove all the way to Palm Springs. we stayed at the most colorful hotel, laid by the pool, rode bikes, had drinks, swam, people watched, and just enjoyed the hotel life. it went by way too fast but it was definitely the best twenty first birthday.
