Joshua Tree National Park ©
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.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Sat): explore the striking landscape at Keys View, then admire the verdant scenery at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, and then explore the striking landscape at Skull Rock. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the natural beauty at Cholla Cactus Garden, then trek along Wall Street Mill, and then identify plant and animal life at Barker Dam Trail.

To find reviews, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Joshua Tree National Park trip builder website .

In May in Joshua Tree National Park, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 61°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
