Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park Located in southeastern California about an hour east of Palm Springs. This park protects a region where the Mojave and Colorado deserts converge and is known for its plant diversity.

Unlike most national parks, summer is the least popular time to visit here because the temperatures exceed 100 degrees. March and April are the ideal time to visit and if there has been enough winter rain, you may see wildflowers in bloom. Even in the winter the temperatures are pleasant.

This desert only receives about 4 inches of rain a year but there are hundreds of species that live here. Red-spotted toads, round-tailed ground squirrels, bighorn sheep, coyotes, kangaroo rats and rattlesnakes are some of them.

This park has 9 campgrounds. The best way to discover this park is on foot and there are 12 short nature trails. Rock climbing is another favorite activity here with more than 400 formations to climb. It has become a world class rock climbing destination. Horseback riding, biking, stargazing and backpacking are other activities to be enjoyed here.
