The Joshua Tree National Park- USA

An awesome get away place from our city life. The park entrance fee is USD$15 per vehicle and it is valid for seven days. We got the annual pass for USD$30. When we hear “desert,” our mind will often link to “hot”. However, that is not always the case. The temperature in the park varies widely from season to season. Spring and fall temperatures are most comfortable, with an average high/low of 29 degree Celsius and 10 degree celsius respectively. Winter brings cooler days, around 15 degree celsius, and freezing nights. It occasionally snows at higher elevations. Summers are hot, with temperature over 38 degree Celsius during the day and 20 degree celsius in the morning.

A Lady bird caught in action. An unlikely scene to be found in a desert.

Rock climbers can be seen almost everywhere.

The Joshua Tree is more like a private home or retreat… a super quiet place and if you are looking for a place like that, I just found one for you. With an airy space, you can bring along a chair, sit and read or go into the common area for barbecuing and chatting up people who might be nearby. The people are really nice. It's totally safe and I didn't have a single concern... an unique place, I will definitely be back.
