Planning a trip to the Mojave and know all the photography spots in Joshua Tree you want to hit up, but don’t have your captions picked out?
I’ve gathered 30 Joshua tree captions for Instagram, including Joshua Tree puns, Joshua Tree quotes, and general desert quotes (though I have even more desert quotes here!)
None of these work? You can also check out my Palm Springs caption, since they’ll be some overlap there!

Wanderlust and desert dust.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure some of them are sandy.
You, me, and the desert make three.
All I need are Joshua trees and 100 degrees.
Never met a desert sunset I didn’t like.
Desert hair, don’t care.
Joshua Tree Puns
Joshua Tree rocks!
Just Joshin‘ around
Can I Joshua a question?
I got Twentynine Palms but a b*tch ain’t one
What do you call a hipster Joshua tree? A Joshua twee.
I was trying to come up with a good Joshua Tree joke, but they’re all awful dry.
Mojave, mo’ problems
Keys are the best days of our life
Agave up finding a plant more beautiful than the Joshua tree
Yucca run, but you can’t hide from my love of Joshua trees!
Keep palm and carry on
Don’t desert me in Joshua Tree!
I’m desert-ly in love with Joshua Tree!
