Joshua Tree National Park


Be the first to review

Named after the unique Joshua Trees abundant in the park, this desert park is much less well known than Death Valley National Park or Yosemite National Park, but it is full of short, rewarding hiking trails. Among its treasures are the Cholla Cactus Garden, a short winding trail that features incredibly dense concentrations of cacti, and Skull Rock, a large skull-shaped rock formation where tourists go and take pictures of themselves standing in the eye sockets. There are also longer trails for those planning on spending more time in the park. The park also features numerous lizards, particularly in the spring, and spectacular sunsets. A satisfying treat for anyone who likes unusual plants or rock formations, or simply enjoys hiking in the sunshine. It is a desert, so visitors are advised to bring plenty of water.
