My partner and I were on a road trip from L.A. to Bullhead City, AZ. We accidentally missed our exit and ended up taking a long way. This way went through the Wee Thump Joshua Tree Wilderness Area (called Joshua Tree Highway) near Nipton, CA and Searchlight, NV. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise and made the extra time added to the route well worth it. We pulled up, saw beautiful joshua trees scattered all over the place and saw the huge full moon rising overhead. If you find yourself anywhere near Searchlight, take a drive down Joshua Tree Hwy.
