When the mercury's rising in in LA, the last place people think of heading to is Joshua Tree. But as we've seen with this year's two back-to-back Coachella weekends, triple-digit temps are no biggie when the scene is cool.
The huge music fest might've put the High Desert on the map for some, but there are plenty more reasons (other than the gorgeous views and relaxing hot springs) to head east for your next weekend getaway.
