my recent visit to the Joshua Tree

My friend Gary and I went out to find the famous Tree. I traveled 3000 miles to find it. I have some pictures if interested

Joshua Tree National Park in the California desert.

The tree itself actually fell down a few years ago. It is the crumpled mass on the ground... See here:

Nope. It's about 200 miles or so north of there.

Thats awesome. I'm glad to see that the tree still sits there. If it's been about 4-5 years since it fell, then I'm hopeful it will still be there in 2 when I am able to visit.

Thats so awesome congrats.

Thank you for the stunning pictures. I hope you had a wonderful trip there. The location is almost too beautiful. It's a special place for U2 and U2 fans.

I love this site, too.

That's the name for the plant. The Mormons named it that. I forget why.

It looks like the Biblical Joshua waving his hands I believe. Its actually a Yucca. The correct name is Yucca brevifoila. They grow at certain elevations. Im no expert but will say you dont want to climb one.. I tried and got pretty cut up
