Joshua Tree National Park Guide
The closest National Park to San Diego and Los Angeles is Joshua Tree National Park. Dedicated in 1994, it’s become quite popular over the years with the resurgence of Palm Springs as a trendy blogger destination. It’s easy to get to, kind of weird, and the perfect backdrop for a photoshoot. You can’t blame people for wanting to check out this unique park.
Joshua Tree spans two desert systems – the Mojave, a higher elevation and where you’ll find the Joshua Trees and Colorado, a lower elevation and where you’ll find unique plant life like the cholla cactus. This park is no joke! Make sure you come prepared for whatever adventure you are seeking and have plenty of water on hand! Internet will be sketchy if at all so bring a map, download your maps for offline use, and come with a plan.
