Perseid Meteor Shower, Part 1

On our way home from our (freezing) Joshua Tree trip for New Year's, a couple of my friends and I decided that we must come back for the Perseid Meteor Shower (thank you Steven for promptly booking us an amazing group campsite).  Despite the 100 degree heat, I had such an amazing weekend - there's just something about Joshua Tree that you can't help but fall in love with.

A night sky so peppered with stars that it's hard to catch every meteor shooting across it, and a clear view of the milky way left me in awe.
