Never would have guessed Hawaii.

Would parts of Alaska also technically count, or do even the parts furthest north receive enough precipitation to not be considered deserts?

The caveat about desert climate and source 2 are contradicting each other as the Wikipedia article states that Kaʻū isn't a true desert in that it does not have a desert climate with less than 1,000 mm of annual rainfall. I think you should change the caveat.
