Had Breakfast in the RV. Left Bakersfield on Hwy-58 east to Barstow, then Hwy-247 south to Hwy-62 east to Joshua Tree National Monument. We went through the visitor center and the drove through the park. After touring Joshua Tree we drove back west on Hwy-62 to Yucca Valley to visit Russ and Marta Gentry, long time friends and co-workers of mine. Russ and Marta took us out to supper. After supper they took us to see Pionertown. The town started as a live-in Old West motion picture set, built in the 1940s. The movie set was designed to provide a place for the actors to live, and at the same time to have their homes used as part of the movie set. A number of Westerns and early television shows were filmed in Pioneertown, including The Cisco Kid and Edgar Buchanan's Judge Roy Bean. I didn't have my camera so I got pictures from Wikipedia.,_California

After the tour of Pioneertown and Yucca Valley we went back to Russ and Marta's house to visit. We spent the night in front of their house
