Started from LA Downtown, we reached Palm Springs after a 2,5h drive. During the ride to the city you will drive through one of the largest wind farms of California.
This is a very good stop to fill in some fuel and drive through the palm avenues.
We didn't made a sightseeing stop, because we wanted to reach on this day Las Vegas and it was already 5:30PM.
So we drove on and after 1h, we reached the Joshua Tree National Park entrance.
We decided to visit only the first bigger point in the National Park, so we drove 25min to the Quail Springs Trail.
JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK
|74485 National Park Dr.Twentynine Palms, CA 92277-3597|
There are several places to stop and wander around in this beautiful desert. The Joshua trees themselves are fascinating trees and you also have the option to sleep in one of the campgrounds inside the Park.
If you have more time, you can visit a lot more viewpoints in the park.
But in our case of limited time, this was a very good point to see the style of the park with the joshua trees.
After discovering the area we drove to our next destination, Las Vegas.
