Joshua Tree National Park

Formerly a national monument until 1994 when it was promoted to a National Park. The land lies between the Sonoran and Mojave deserts

Keys View, top of Little San Bernardino Mountain. On a clear day, which is rare, you can see Signal Mountain in Mexico.

The Cholla Cactus Garden located where the upper Mojave Desert fuses with the lower Colorado Desert. It is called the cutest cactus and often referred to as the "teddy bear" cactus. Not sure why because the cactus is covered in spines that will latch into your skin on the slightest touch.
