Joshua Tree National Park

Named for the tree-like plants that populate its nearly 800,000 acres, Joshua Tree National Park combines parts of the Mojave Desert and Colarodo Desert in California.

Smooth desert dunes contrast the rugged Little San Bernadino Mountains and the area between them fosters a wide variety of interesting plants and wildlife.

The otherwordly landscape at Joshua Tree has inspired sci-fi dream worlds (Tatooine in Star Wars), attracted UFO seekers, and been an artistic haven for creative minds.
