All is well in Joshua Tree. The children had a good night overall and we woke up at 6:30 this morning. Then one group helped make breakfast — banana pancakes and fruit — then we cleaned up, packed sandwiches, and we are off in two groups for a canyon hike and exploring in the park. More news at the end of day! We will try to send pictures but the connection is very weak.
P.S. We have access to very clean, individual pit toilets, with hand-washing stations with soap and foot-pumped water.
