    The Mojave meets the Colorado in Joshua Tree

    A land of sculpted rock formations and gnarled stones, of ancient, wind-blasted boulders and rolling desert scrub that shoots out as far as the eye can see, the Joshua Tree National Park is like an image of the American Wild West. It's formed at the point where the dry Colorado Desert crashes into the tree-studded hinterlands of the Mojave Desert, famed for its spiny, namesake genus of yucca and the carved mountains that pepper its interior. Joshua Tree vacation rentals offer a ticket to this quintessential Californian wilderness, for eye-watering sunsets and wonderful hikes aplenty.

    Wax down the walking boots in Joshua Tree

    With trailheads bearing monikers like the Boy Scout Trail, the 49 Palms Oasis Trail, and the Lost Horse Mine, it's hardly a surprise that hiking is one of the top pursuits in this sun-scorched corner of South Cali. You'll need to bring along the walking boots, and look for Joshua Tree vacation rentals that are close to the entrance of the reserve for good access to those. Rock climbing and wildlife viewing are also uber-popular, with challenging granite edifices to clamber up, and everything from scurrying lizards to bighorn sheep to majestic golden eagles making their home here.

    Geology and cacti gardens at Joshua Tree

    If you're lucky enough to have bagged Joshua Tree vacation rentals that are close to the gateway of the park, then you're just a stone's throw from the wondrous geological formations that make this protected reserve so famous. These range from the spiked tops of the so-called Giant Marbles to the anthropomorphic rises of the Old Woman Rock, with oodles of hoodoos and chiseled canyons in between. And there's also awesome wildlife viewing at Barker Dam, panoramic lookout points atop Keys View, and babbling waters to bathe in at nearby Cottonwood Springs.

    Hot and sunny all year round in Joshua Tree

    Being entirely desert climate, the whole area around Joshua Tree is hot for much of the year. However, during the spring and fall, mercury levels aren’t too high, and the light breezes and blooming flower beds all combine to make it all just about perfect for planning long hikes and multi-day treks through the wilderness. Winter is also warm in these parts, and is popular with rock climbers seeking out peaks away from the snow-doused national parks of northern California.

    Vast hinterlands in Joshua Tree

    With the Mojave Desert crashing through one side of the Joshua Tree National Park and the eastern end of the reserve taken over by the cacti-spotted scrublands of the Colorado Desert, there's really no escaping the vast hinterlands of inner California. Famous trekking trails like the Hidden Valley and the 16-mile Boy Scout Trail crisscross the area, weaving and winding past megalith stones and mind-boggling geological creations as they go. And then there's the otherworldly medley of wildlife to see, in the form of golden eagles and blooming Joshua Tree yucca plants – like something from another planet.
