Joshua Tree National Park


View Southwest US in Winter 2024 on Boilersfrom1989's travel map.

We visited on a sunny Tuesday in February.

It was not crowded and we were able to stop along the road for several pictures of the Joshua trees.

We took the drive up to Keys Viewpoint at 5185 feet and were rewarded with great views in all directions

Our last stop was at Cholla Cactus Garden. Pictures don’t capture it, but it looks like it goes on for miles.

I was impressed with the park in many ways. The rock formations were varied and complex. The Joshua Tree plants were a cool combination of tree and cactus without being either. The views of the mountains and valleys made it all larger than life. Excellent day.
