Winter in Joshua Tree

Winter in Joshua Tree National Park is wonderful with high temperatures still hitting the mid 60s, abundant sunshine, and less crowds.

Winter in Joshua Tree National Park is wonderful with high temperatures still hitting the mid 60s, abundant sunshine, and less crowds. The winter months bring more solitude to a usually very popular park. If you don’t mind the near-freezing low temperatures, camping during this time of year is also a treat.

Despite the fact that Joshua Tree is a desert park, light snowfall is not out of the ordinary during the winter months.

The Joshua Tree Film​

MTJP | Joshua Tree is the culmination of nearly a month spent exploring Joshua Tree National Park. We chose Joshua Tree because of its unique landscape. Its immense boulder piles, colorful cactus fields, endless desert expanses, and one-of-a-kind Joshua trees make for a spectacular setting. This film was shot entirely in 4K.
