Joshua Tree National Park in the Mojave and Colorado deserts has sort of a Seussian appearance with tall, people-shaped trees and huge, round boulders that just beg to be climbed. Glampers who want a romantic vacation, can enjoy hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, photography, birding, star gazing, and wildlife programs. Joshua trees were named by Mormons migrating across the desert in the mid-19th century because they reminded them of the Biblical story of Joshua reaching his hands up to the sky in prayer. The spiky desert trees are part of the yucca family and live throughout the southwest. Nearby glamping accommodations include cabins, cottages, villas and geodesic domes. Some of the rentals come with hot tubs or swimming pools, gourmet kitchens and a variety of amenities.
