Joshua Tree National Park is the perfect getaway for those in the Los Angeles, San Diego or Las Vegas areas. This desert park is home to numerous varieties of plants and animals that brave the climatic extremes and unpredictable rain. Even the park's namesake, the Joshua tree, resides here and blooms in the spring. With almost 800,000 acres (3,23,748.5 hectares) of land and three ecosystems surviving within it, you just might catch a glimpse of a California Mountain Lion stalking its prey or a California Desert Bat flying overhead. If you're looking for an overnight adventure be sure to checkout one of the nine campgrounds, but if spending the night in the desert isn't your cup of tea, stop by the ranger's office to find out about the guided and unguided tours available.
