Fun in the Sun in So Cal ~ Joshua Tree

0 Comment

We have so many great things to do and see living in So Cal, here’s a local favorite about 2 hours south of Orange Co.

Not lot ago we headed out for a drive in So Cal, heading east on the 10 past Palm Springs on our way to the George S. Patton Museum, in the desert about 35 minutes south of Indio on the 10.  Right after our visit to the museum we followed the road and wound up in the Joshua Tree National Park established in 1994.

Driving through the park we came upon the Cholla Cactus Garden (and our course) we had to stop immediately at the view point for a closer look ourselves, it was amazing site to see.

Admission to the park was $15,  however we only found that out near  the exit near Twenty-Nine Palms, the closest city to the Park.  We entered the park near the south/east end not far off the 10 freeway, from that point we didn’t see any toll/payment booth. So it was a surprise for us at the end, yet it was well worth it!

To our amazement with found a wide varitey of terrain all surrounded by spectacular mountains. Just check it out for yourself.
