California Desert Trip
Though winter frost is usually associated with snow-covered trees, the desert is a great place to visit in the winter. Scorching summer temperatures in California (which sometimes reach over 120°F!) mean that the cooler seasons make the desert bearable. There are plenty of deserts, like Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Mojave, Death Valley, and more, to spend your winter in the Southern California area.
