Joshua Tree National Park
The 794,000-acre Joshua Tree National Park encompasses two large ecosystems, primarily determined by elevation: The Colorado and The Mojave Deserts. Here in the Mojave section, slightly higher, cooler and wetter is the special habitat of the undisciplined Joshua Tree, which gave the park its name.
Home to the globally recognized Mural Project, Joshua Tree National Park Headquarters, and the largest United States Marine Corps. Base in the world, Twentynine Palms is rich in history and culture. Experience the beautiful natural surroundings, historic adobes, picturesque vistas, starlit skies and breathtaking sunsets. Separated by a mountain range, the land creates a unique and relaxing environment. Temperature ranges are similar to the San Bernardino-Riverside area, with clean air and low humidity.
With a hometown atmosphere and an ideal location in Southern California's high desert about 35 minutes northeast of Palm Springs on Highway 62, Yucca Valley residents enjoy a climate and quality of life that is nearly impossible to match. Enjoying sunshine and clear skies more than 320 days a year, locals and visitors find an ideal environment to enjoy the open spaces, starry nights and many outdoor recreation opportunities.
