Hello everybody! My boyfriend and I will be in Joshua Tree NP for a night in mid-June. We will be arriving from LA (we are planning to leave at around 2-3pm or so), and I have a few questions on how best to organize our stay.
1. Would you recommend driving straight to the park? Or should be stop at the Palm Spring Aerial Tramway? Is it worth it?
2. Should we visit the park on that day (so late afternoon/sunset), or would it be better to wait until next morning and visit at sunrise? Either way, I guess we would have about 3 hours.
3. Which are the best spots for stargazing, possible closer to either the West or North entrance? I read that the night sky in the park is spectaculer, but can't find anything about the best viewpoints.
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
