Joshua Tree National Park — 9 nights

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.
Explore Joshua Tree National Park's surroundings by going to General George S. Patton Memorial Museum (in Chiriaco Summit), Ladder Canyon Trail (in Mecca) and Salvation Mountain (in Calipatria). There's lots more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, explore the activities along Salton Sea, take in the dramatic natural features at Skull Rock, and take in nature's colorful creations at Cholla Cactus Garden.

In June, daily temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can reach 102°F, while at night they dip to 73°F.
