Joshua Tree Geminid Showers

Last night, we went out to Joshua Tree National Park to see the Geminid meteor showers. Although it was several hours past it’s peak, we saw many brilliant ones flying across the sky.

Upon arrival, we drove through Hidden Valley Campground and accidentally occupied someone else’s site. We relocated to the Ryan Campground and took one of the remaining two campsites there.

It was a cold night, and the temperature dipped down to 23°F. Icicles from breathing condensation clung to my pager, which was next to my face.

We enjoyed a good show and had a safe drive home.
