California - Palm Springs & the Deserts (Chapter)

6th Edition Mar 2012

This is the Palm Springs & the Deserts chapter from Lonely Planet’s California guidebook.

Weathered volcanic peaks, singing sand dunes and palm oases have lured prospectors and miners, artists, visionaries and wanderers to the California desert for years. And through it all threads iconic Route 66, still lined with moodily rusting roadside relics.

  • maps
  • hunt rare elephant trees and scramble around the wind caves of vast Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
  • transportation
  • restaurants & accommodation
  • hop around smooth, big-shouldered boulders in the Hidden Valley at Joshua Tree National Park
