Joshua Tree National Park

— 8 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.
Johnny Lang Grave has been added to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to East Jesus (in Niland), Salvation Mountain (in Calipatria) and Mecca (International Banana Museum & Ladder Canyon Trail). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Skull Rock, identify plant and animal life at Barker Dam Trail, and hike along Ryan Mountain.

For more things to do, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Joshua Tree National Park road trip planning site.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 61°F, and evening lows to 39°F.
