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. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Joshua Tree National Park: East Jesus (in Niland), Mecca (International Banana Museum & Ladder Canyon Trail) and Salvation Mountain (in Calipatria). The adventure continues: admire the verdant scenery at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Cap Rock at Joshua Tree, look for all kinds of wild species at Barker Dam Trail, and trek along Split Rock.
