Ryan Mountain, California, USA

A Humbling Hike Up Ryan Mountain

Joshua Tree National Park is an arid expanse of two desert ecosystems surprisingly packed with hundreds of species of flora and fauna. The short but strenuous and sunny 1.5-mile hike up Ryan Mountain (5,457 feet) offers humbling views of the vast surroundings with a skyline of rock piles and Joshua trees. Landmarks include the Wonderland of Rocks, Ryan Ranch Ruins, and Lost Horse Mountain, but the way the sun hits the land and the orange-yellow earth contrasts with the blue skies is what will leave an impression.
