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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Joshua Tree National Park: Salvation Mountain (in Calipatria), Ladder Canyon Trail (in Mecca) and General George S. Patton Memorial Museum (in Chiriaco Summit). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, explore and take pictures at Geology Tour Road, take in nature's colorful creations at Cholla Cactus Garden, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Arch Rock Nature Trail.
