Before I start today off let me cover yesterday's wasted day first. Started our morning out as normal and around 10:30 while eating breakfast and reading blogs all of a sudden my internet went completely dead on my phone and my hotspot.
I tried figuring it out myself for about an hour and then called Verizon for help. After almost an hour of elevator music I finally got someone on the line. She tried to help for awhile and then finally turned me over to Ron, a Verizon technician.
That poor guy went through everything in his book to help and nothing worked. I finally said maybe the tower went down all of a sudden and I would run the 26 miles down to Indio, California to the Walmart and see if they work there. I needed a few things anyway.
Yep! 😁 Got 5G and the hotspot got 4G. All is good. That pretty much ended our day and it was time for Gold Rush at 5 o'clock. Luckily, that worked perfectly and we finished our day with fried chicken breasts, corn and dessert.

The southern entrance is not very exciting for 35 miles till you hit the main road coming in from 29 Palms in the north.
Our drive was pretty along a winding road up into the park and then down into the valley where all the huge stones and Joshua Trees are.
Arrived at our first Joshua Tree.
Finally after about 50 miles we arrived at Key View. The road ends here overlooking the Salton Sea, Coachella and Indio in the valley way below.
