I had driven from Yuma to Quartzsite to pick up a package at my mail forwarder. Then I had a shower at the Flying J in Ehrenberg. Afterward, at the roundabout, where I could got east, north or west, I suddenly decided to go to Joshua Tree rather than return to Yuma. Decisions like that are easy when you already have all your stuff with you. A couple of hours later I was climbing around an outcropping, enjoying the perfect weather.
