"You must take a day to go to..." Palm Springs Favorite Tip by RainWispr1

Palm Springs General: 29 reviews and 25 photos

Favorite thing: You must take a day to go to Joshua Tree National Park. It's about a 45 minute drive from the city. We got there in the afternoon and took an early evening walk in the 'high desert'. The sunset was beautiful. We sat on a BIG rock and watched the last rays disappear in the west. As it got dark, we walked back to the car and I thought about snakes. It had cooled off considerably and I thought it would be the time snakes would come out to cool off too. We didn't see any snakes but as darkness fell, the stars overshadowed even the beauty of the sunset. There were millions and millions. It seemd like there were more stars than darkness.

Fondest memory: The sunset and starry night at Joshua Tree was my fondest memory of our Palm Springs trip.
