I am going to Joshua Tree for one night on Saturday the 8th (stealing some time from a business trip) and have not done desert camping in a bit.
My plan is to bring a very light quilt, but the weather says lows of 72. I am only out for the night and all day Sunday, so I am looking to elimante most gear and treat this as a glorified day hike.
Any suggestions or things to be aware of? Planning on bringing plenty of water as I am unused to the hot temps and know I will drink a ton. Otherwise I don't plan on any rain gear, clothes. Basically just some first aid stuff, sleep pad, food and lots of water.
Any suggestions appreciated.
