Joshua Tree - Under an Amazing Sky

Joshua Tree yazisinin basligi mutlaka yildizlarla ve gokyuzu ile ilgili olmaliydi. Hayatimda gorup gorebilecegim en muhtesem gokyuzu ve yildiz soleniydi.
The title of this Joshua Tree post should have been about stars and sky for sure. That sky and the star feast were one of the most incredible and amazing one that i've ever could seen in my life.

Eylul ayinda Turkiye'den annemle babam beni ziyarete geldi ve burada olduklari zamanin hepsini Los Angeles'da gecirmemek adina yakin yerleri iceren, toplam 5 gunluk bir rota ayarladik. Ilk duragimiz, Palm Springs'e ugrayarak (sirf unlu bir restaurantta yemek icin ugradik) Joshua Tree idi. Bu arada gercekten Joshua Tree'ye gitme planiniz var ise, Palm Springs'e mutlaka ugrayin. Palm Springs'teki palmiyelerle dolu caddeleri, o guzel tek katli evleri ve peyzajlarini kesfedin. 
In September my mom and dad from Turkey came to visit me, and not to spend the all days that they were going to be, in Los Angeles and we arranged a 5 day trip which includes the close cities and locations. Our first stop was Joshua Tree by stopping by Plam Springs before that just to go to a famous restaurant for lunch. By the way, if you really have a plan to go to Joshua Tree, you should definetely stop by in Palm Springs. Explore the streets full of Palm Trees, those flat houses and their landscapes.
Joshua Tree'yi Google gorsellerde ararsaniz tek bir tip agac ile dolu bir National Park cikacak karsiniza. Evet Joshua Tree bir National Park ve evet sadece o gordugunuz tip kaktusumsu/camimsi agac var; zaten agacin adi Joshua. Bu soylemle "E bir agac turu gormek icin gidilir mi?" dediginizi duyar gibiyim. Ne yalan soyleyeyim ben de biraz boyle dusunuyordum ama bu kadar populer olmasinin ardinda bir tek bu agac olamaz da diyordum. Gercekten sadece bir agac tipi gormekle ilgili degilmis bu olay; yasattigi tum guzel hislermis.
If you look up Joshua Tree on Google images, National Park with full of only one type of tree images will come up. Yes Joshua Tree is a National Park and yes there is only that type of tree which is like cactus and pine tree; the name of it is Joshua. I might hear that you ask like "So is it worth that going there just to see that one type of tree?" . To be honest, i'd been thinking the same but i also was thinking that there must be something else beside of that tree. Really seeing that tree was not the only thing; all the feelings that it gave.
Joshua Tree'nin yasattigi ve verdigi hisleri keske kelimelere dokebilsem. Biz tam gun batiminda National Park'a giris yapabildik; zaten tam istedigimiz vakit buydu. Ziyaretimiz, gun batiminin olusturdugu kizil gokyuzu ve agaclarin siluetinin yarattigi muthis bir manzarayla basladi. Fakat bu manzaranin yaninda, bizimle birlikte olan bir tek hafif ruzgarin cikardigi ses vardi. Ne bir tasit ne bir insan sesi... Sadece doganin sesi bizleydi. Tabii ki turist dolu ama park o kadar genis ki, yayiliyor tum turistler ve hic bir ses olmuyor.
I wish i could put the feelings that Joshua Tree gave in words. We could enter the National Park just on the sunset time; which it was an exact time what we wanted. Our visit started with an amazing view by a red sky and the silhouette of the trees. In addition to that view, there was only one thing with us; the sound of the wind. Neither vehicle sound or human sound... Only the sound of nature was with us. Of course there were plenty of tourists, but the park is so wide and the tourists were spreaded out aswell. And there is no sound because of this.
Gun batiminin ardindan, biraz yuruyus yaptik. Hava kararirken bir piknik masasi bulduk ve hemen coktuk. Ardindan hic bir yapay isigin olmadigi, sadece muhtesem yildizlarin aydinlattigi bir gokyuzu tepemizde oldugu bir ana gectik. O gordugum gokyuzunu unutamayacagim. Samanyolu'nu bile cok net bir sekilde gorebildigim, 360 derece parildayan gokyuzu Joshua Tree gezime dair hatirladigim en en en guzel andi. Ardindan cok garip bir meditatif an yasadim; sirf bu dogal guzellikten dolayi. O yuzden doga ile iletisim bence cok onemli. Bu yuzden doga gezileri beni artik ayri bir cezbediyor.
After the sunset, we walked little bit. Just while the sky was getting darker, we found a picnic table and settled down. Then, we passed to the moment which there was no artificial light, there was only sky which lightened us with full of stars. I will never forget that sky i saw. The sky that i could easilty see the Milky Way, that was shining with 360 degrees above us was the best moment of my Joshua Tree trip. After this natural beauty, i experienced a deep meditative moment. I think the communication between you and nature is so important. That's why the trips integrated with nature attract me more.
Joshua Tree'de muhtesem karavan airbnbler vs. var. Biz Best Western Gardens Hotel'de kaldik. Parkin biraz disinda normal bir otel, ama bu bolgede cok cok fazla secenek yok. Fakat kendime soz verdim, bir dahaki gidisimde karavan tarzi bir airbnb'de kalacagim evet. Ayrica Joshua Tree National Park'in websitesine bakarsaniz, muhtesem workshoplar var; gokyuzu fotografciligi vs. gibi. Bir sonrakinde bunlar da aklimda olacak, kesinlikle!
There are amazing caravan airbnb stayings in Joshua Tree. We stayed at Best Western Gardens Hotel. It was such a basic hotel outside of the park, but there are not plenty options in this area. But i promised myself, next time i am going to stay in a caravan airbnb, yes! Also, if you check the Joshua Tree National Park's website , there are amazing workshops; sky photography etc. Next time, these are gonna be on my mind, for sure!
