Day trip from Palm Springs, CA to Joshua Tree National Park. The only national park that requires you to present your park pass on the way in and on the way out…. don’t know perhaps they are still doing Covid protocols 😉.
We entered the park on the north side. The ride through the park (est 1200 sq miles) is about 75 miles. There are numerous places view, walk or hike in the park. We saw some folks repelling down some high rock formations as well. The road is ideal for motorcycles with its twists, curves and varying elevations.
We did hit a high temperature of 110 degrees on the way back to Palm Springs, CA. Tomorrow, we head to Laguna Beach, CA. Hoping for more modest temperatures as well!!
