I'd spend both nights in a Palm Springs. Friday traffic is usually heavy in the afternoon. Drive on Saturday to Joshua Tree, return to PS before dark. Have a nice dinner on Palm Canyon Dr. On Sunday go up the Tram to the top of Mt San Jacinto.

If you do go up the tram, be prepared for very cold weather. The snow levels are really low.
