Why I wonder is I am giving hard thought to moving back to Calif from Arizona within 24 months; and Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree/29 Palms are all on my radar.

Note the heat does not scare me due to my almost 20 years in low desert Arizona

I think the high desert cities are Victorville,Apple Valley,Hesperia,Phelan,Adelanto I think yucca Valley is just the plain desert anyways you will love the wind in the summer time it will turn a 100 degree day into a wonderful 78 degrees during the evening I love it. Also it blows away all the smog ,fog and clouds nothing but clear skies

Actually; according to several websites pertaining to specifically Yucca Valley.............they refer to that city as being part of the 'Hi-Desert'. Their spelling, not mine

Yeah but lately it also tends to kick up dirt, especially when it's very dry. I personally found the air quality to be worse when it's very windy. There aren't as many clear skies as there used to be, IMO.

Yes, the "hi-desert" includes Yucca Valley, 29 Palms, Joshua Tree. We were stationed in 29 Palms while my husband was in the Marine Corps and it would get quite windy. I remember when we were loading the moving truck when we were leaving, a huge sand storm, we could barely see the truck!
It also gets really cold, the wind coming down from Big Bear. We have good memories of 29 Palms though

Would you care to elaborate or was it more in association with the Marine base?

Well, probably that and being newly married and the first time away from home....I do have to say that I had what is called "culture shock" when I first arrived! I was 19 years old and had never lived anywhere but San Diego and here I was out in the middle of nowhere! We were there all 4 years and I was actually sad to leave. I worked on base at the px along with some of the civilians. They were very nice people, although the population at that time was mostly Marines and their families. This was back 85-89. Not sure how much it has grown since but we did stop back through to visit about 10 years ago, on our way back from the river. It did look different, more grown!
It was very safe and friendly town. If I didn't care for it much when we first got there, I did come to call it home!

What struck me when I drove through on Hwy 62 the first time two years ago (I was living in Bullhead City then) was the 'vibe' that I got from the people there------much like the San Fernando Valley of ca. 1983.

Translation: laid back

Simple answer, Yes. Hence the windmill farms located in the Whitewater Pass near the turnoff from the freeway (I-10).

Is it too windy? Not to me, but you pays your money and you takes your choice.
