Joshua Tree National Park is a natural desert wonderland. Its enormous granite boulders dot a colorful landscape rich in flora and fauna. The Joshua Trees for which the park is named helped inspire the artwork of the children's book author known as Dr. Seuss. After a walk through Hidden Valley, or a trek up Ryan Mountain, you'll have no trouble seeing the connection between Seuss's delightfully bizarre illustrations and the unique natural world of Joshua Tree.
Discover the joy of scrambling across the rocks and test yourself by navigating the talus caves of Indian Cove. You'll have the opportunity to catch every sunrise and sunset, to exercise and relax, and to soak up the clean and powerful energy radiated by the desert, filled with it's collosal monzogranite structures.
