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.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Sun): take an in-depth tour of General George S. Patton Memorial Museum, then identify plant and animal life at Cottonwood Spring Oasis, and then explore the striking landscape at Skull Rock. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, steep yourself in history at Keys Ranch, and then explore the striking landscape at Keys View.

To find maps, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Joshua Tree National Park online vacation planner .

In May, daily temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 61°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
