Yucca Valley is in the desert, in the middle of nowhere. If you travel further to "nowhere," you will get to Twentynine Palms.

29 Palms was originally a town to support the Marine & civilian employee support population of the huge Marine base there, same with Yucca Valley. There also used to be mining.

It's in the Mojave Desert, which is high desert. It will always be triple-digit hot in the summer, windy, cold, blowing sand in the winter. It isn't that far from Joshua Tree, and not that much different, it just doesn't have the celebrity rep of JT. People are moving to 29 Palms because they are running out of places to go that are affordable. If you like exploring, hiking & offroading in the desert, this is the place.

I would, however, be concerned about all the illegal marijuana grows in San Bernardino County & if that would impede my ability to travel around freely.

Is there enough water to support a large population?

It's the desert & the source is ground water. I knew people who had tanks & had their water trucked in.

Then there is this.

Thanks for the info. Yea, there are a lot of people that are moving to more rural areas because it's just too expensive to survive in areas that are more populated.

Hopefully that would change over time. I'm of the opinion that as time goes by and more people come in to areas like 29, more stuff like that gets pushed away.

I forgot to add that a lot of the "tiny houses" are old homesteader's shacks that were built in the 1950's.They & the land could be purchased for $20-$30K or maybe less a few years ago. There may still be some of them around.
