"An amazing experience in Joshua Tree"

Joshua Tree National Park is only a 2 - 2. 5 hour drive from Los Angeles which makes it the closest National Park to the City of Angels. Watching a sunset, viewing the night sky in the evening, or walking throughout the park is truly amazing.

Since Joshua Tree National Park comprises parts of both the Mojave and the Sonoran Deserts, it features a startling diversity of life. Animals such as the coyote, yucca night lizard, burrowing owl, tarantula, and roadrunner live here; and plants vary from the ephemeral desert wildflowers to the cholla cactus, barrel cactus, and of course the Joshua tree. The park is immense and infinitely variable, yet delicately fragile. It is a land shaped by sudden torrents of rain and climatic extremes.

Come experience this national natural gem!
