Located in the California desert, Joshua Tree National Park is named for the rare and beautiful trees that are found in the park. Many national parks are best visited in summertime. However, Joshua Tree’s desert location makes the cooler parts of the year the most ideal to visit. Here are the top 7 reasons to consider visiting this fall.
1. The Pleasant Weather
Temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can easily soar over 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) during the summer. During the fall – particularly from October through the end of November, temperatures hover in a much more manageable 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit (20-26 degrees celsius) range. This makes exploring the great outdoors not only more comfortable but also safer, as you won’t have to worry quite as much about heat exhaustion or dehydration.
