When the sun sets on Joshua Tree National Park, the sky turns pink, then fuchsia, and silhouettes of cacti stretch across the desert horizon. Rock climbers and artists alike flock to the surrounding area to enjoy its natural beauty and stay the night to view colorful sunsets followed by spectacular night skies. The road there, along Route 111, offers up a slice of the American West, health food stores and wine shops giving way to mustang farms and boulders past the Yucca Valley. Upon arrival, visitors can hike and climb to their heart’s content within 800,000 acres of protected land and treat themselves to a gourmet meal and art exhibition in the park’s bordering towns. For all the stargazers out there, a list of Joshua Tree’s most secluded log cabins.
