Finally arrived to sunshine and warmer temps! Monterey was a great weekend stop. We explored the seawall by bike and camped out at a great, inexpensive municipal campground. We then headed further south to continue the summery weather. While in Joshua Tree area we encountered an intense dust storm! That was a first.
