It's the 30th anniversary of U2's Joshua Tree album release, which means it's time to talk about the drop-dead gorgeousness of Joshua Tree National Park. Located in stunning Southern California, this unique landscape offers guests plenty of things to do and see. Whether you're into hiking, camping, stargazing or just want to check out some cool flora and fauna, Joshua Tree is not to be missed.
These beautiful, spiked, seemingly extraterrestrial trees are indigenous to the Mojave Desert and play an important role in the ecosystem, providing food and shelter to mammals, reptiles, insects and birds.
Take a walk along the beautiful, sandy paths and snap photos of the stunning landscapes.

Good Night! #Repost @usinterior ・・・ @neohumanity here again. This shot was taken at #California’s #JoshuaTree National Park during sunset. It’s one of my favorite parks to shoot the last the day’s last light and the Milky Way. I love exploring national parks, and I feel so lucky to have the opportunities to visit all these amazing places. Every trip teaches me invaluable things that I couldn't learn other ways. Feel free to ask me questions about photography, traveling and national parks. Photo @joshuatreenps courtesy of Niaz Uddin (@neohumanity). #usinterior #FindYourPark
See if you can prove U2 wrong and find a few street signs.
Immerse yourself in nature and spend the night camping (in a designated zone, of course). Joshua Tree is the perfect place for stargazing.
Seeking an adrenalin rush? Book a rock-climbing tour and work out your arms.
Spent this past weekend building my love for climbing with an amazing group of women. Climbing has always been something I've wanted to try, but seemed to be out of reach for me to get into. About two months ago, I dove head first into the climbing world and it has sucked me in. I don't think I would've been able to lead this weekend if it hadn't been for their confidence and guidance. ❤️ I can't wait to get out on the rocks again and be above the world. // 📷: @sandyhooper and @xoxrandiballxox
