The Lucky Boy Loop will take you to the Lucky Boy Vista. As I have mentioned in previous Joshua Tree reviews, I appreciate the desert. As I hiked and photographed along the Lucky Boy Loop, I thought about some cowboys hiding out in the rocks of Joshua Tree, running from a posse. The trail is dynamic in that it changes from rocky terrain to soft sand and back again. It disappears among the rocks, but somehow you are able to follow it. As a photographer, the hike took longer than it would without all the stops. You are about 4500' elevation. Take plenty of water.
