Joshua Tree Nationwide Park is a giant state park in southeastern California, east of Los Angeles, close to Palm Springs. It’s named for the Joshua timber (Yucca brevifolia) native to the Mojave Desert.
Initially declared a nationwide monument in 1936, Joshua Tree was re-designated as a nationwide park in 1994. The park encompasses over 1,200 sq. miles, making it barely bigger than the state of Rhode Island. Joshua Tree is a very fashionable place to take pictures of the Milky Means and mountain climbing, which was what we did.
