Joshua Tree National Park

****CLICK ON A PHOTO TO ENLARGE IT****

Joshua Tree National Park is located in California. The Colorado Desert comprises the eastern lower part of the Park; to the west is the higher and wetter Mojave Desert.

Joshua trees, yucca brevifolia, are found only in North America in the states of California, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada, mostly in the Mojave Desert between 2000 and 6000 feet elevation. They can grow up to 40 feet high and live for 200 or more years.

The Park has a fascinating geologic landscape of rugged mountains of twisted rock, rock piles of fantastic shapes which are a draw for rock climbers from around the world. For information about the formation of these rock piles, visit http://www.nps.gov/jotr/nature/features/geology/rockpiles/rocks.html
