Joshua Tree is one of our nation’s newest national parks.  Joshua trees are giant yucca plants that survive extreme heat and cold in California’s Mojave desert.  The park’s classic Western landscape has been filmed extensively for movies and television.  The desert scenery is spectacular!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I have not visited JTNP yet, but hope to do so in the future.

    It is absolutely fantastic! If you stay in the Palm Springs area, you can visit Joshua one day, Anza Borrego another, and Palm Springs fun one day too. This year is very light for flowers, but usually there’s a good display.

  4. I would love to go! It would make a good roadtrip!
