Keys Viewpoint

Joshua Tree National Park

Locate the trailhead.

After our hike, we went to Keys view, a popular spot for watching the sunset. This is just an overlook, there is no hike up. Out to the southeast, the Salton Sea is clearly visible.

The sun is a settin', most definitely.

And since we were sitting and waiting for the sunset, I had some time to try to sketch something.
