There’s at least a week left to see a wide variety of wildflowers blooming at Joshua Tree National Park, northeast of Palm Springs.  The season lasts longer there than many desert locations because of the altitude range up to more than 5,800 feet.

Free entry will be offered April 15-16 and 23-24 to celebrate the National Parks system’s 100th anniversary. Entry is usually $25 per carload. Camping fees will still be in effect. For more information on fees, directions and camping, click here.
