Between the Mojave and Colorado deserts sits Joshua Tree National Park, where you’ll see some of California’s most spectacular sights, including wildlife and plant life. There’s plenty of hiking, camping and rock climbing to be done. However, plan to visit in the cooler seasons, as Joshua Tree can reach well over 100F (38C) in the summer months.
