Mischief Monday – Winter Road Trip Part 1

We started our road trip driving to Cayucos, CA. We chose this as our starting point because it is supposed to be a very dog friendly coastal town.

It didn’t disappoint! The town’s beach allowed for on leash walking only, but the visitor center lady gave me a tip, if you drive to the edge of the town, just before hitting Morro Bay, there’s a pull out with a gate to the beach, where dogs are allowed off leash! There’s even a view of Morro Rock.

We also did a quick hike along the Estero Bluffs.

It’s a leashed hike, with awesome coastal views. It starts out with pretty green meadows.

We stayed at a dog friendly Morro Dunes RV Park, which is directly across a beach close to the Morro Rock. The beach requires dogs to be leashed, but it provides easy access for sunset poop walks.

We started our drive bright and early the next morning as we were driving to Joshua Tree National Park. It was  a long drive and despite our early start, we arrived around 3pm. Joshua Tree National Park only has one dog friendly trail, called the Oasis Trail, directly behind the Twenty Nine Palms Oasis Visitor Center.

Technically, it wasn’t really much of a trail, But it did merit an introduction to the desert land, and afforded QQ plenty of photo ops with the new landscape.

The main reason we stopped at Joshua Tree National Park was for the stargazing. We camped at Indian Cove Campground that night, partly because the rangers said the campground was a good stargazing location.

We woke up at 11pm and 3am and came out to look at the beautiful stars, and also gave the dogs an additional poop/pee opportunity.

And that’s the first two days of our 16 day trip! To be continued…

    • Thank you! QQ has “stay” down pat. So he’s really the best model. We joke that if you look at our photos from the trip, it looks like QQ went on a road trip by himself because there’s barely any humans in the photos!
