Joshua Tree NP - So Better Start with a Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree NP - So Better Start with a Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree NP, California

Timing is everything, and especially to enjoy the pretty blooms of the Joshua tree. Found only in the southwest,
Joshua trees always seem like old friends to me. Like the Mormons thought, who named them after Joshua in
the Bible, they seem to be throwing their arms up in celebration. Some in this park are 100s of years old. Not old by
other tree standards, but kinda old for a desert plants. Sadly, fires these last years have taken some of our oldest Joshuas.

other sizes: small medium original

Beautiful light and composition, plus deep blue! It has funny "hairy" branches ;-)
For me this tree is quite striking species, we don't have nothing like this tree.
Thank you for information too, Sandi.
