Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park ©
Joshua Tree National Park takes its name from the Joshua tree, a twisted, spiky tree with bayonet-shaped leaves at the top that's one of the few plant species hardy enough to thrive in the extreme climate of the Mojave Desert.
When in Joshua Tree National Park, make a side trip to see Salvation Mountain in Calipatria, approximately Calipatria away. There's still lots to do: admire the verdant scenery at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, make a trip to Cap Rock at Joshua Tree, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Eureka Peak, and take in nature's colorful creations at Cholla Cactus Garden.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Joshua Tree National Park travel planning site.

In July, daily temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can reach 103°F, while at night they dip to 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
