Two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park. A fascinating variety of plants and animals make their homes in a land sculpted by strong winds and occasional rainstorms. Dark night skies, a rich cultural history, and surreal geologic features add to the wonder of this vast wilderness in southern California.
