This is one of the places I yearned to go back to this winter. Belle Campground in Joshua Tree National Park.
We’ve been to some nice campgrounds. Lots of nice campgrounds. But I always prefer the ones where we can get away from people and enjoy nature.
I particularly like ones where I can stumble out of the RV in the morning and the scenery is right there waiting for me.
This is one of those special places.
I think I could spend all winter here. Except we need to flush our tanks and pick up some water and propane once in awhile! In a place like this, we don’t leave until we have to.
Just down the way is Jumbo Rocks, where I made the photo of the best sunset ever, and the big round rocks. It’s the most popular campground, but the crowds make it less desirable to me. Plus the campsites are really close together and it’s all cramped in there. Our RV wouldn’t fit. Even if it did, I would rather stay at Belle where the beauty is all mine in the morning.
Whenever I’ve been to Belle, I’m the only person out photographing at sunrise. It is one of the most peaceful and enjoyable places. Maybe the most beautiful campground in California. Although there is alot of competition for that title.
I love California 🙂

Although you can’t see it, our RV is on the other side of the rocks. I made this photo right in the campground.
