Joshua Tree National Park in California in bloom. We visited on March 24, 2013. This is something that I’ve always wanted to see! When I had read in DesertUSA that the trees were in bloom, I suggested we take a drive… it is only 90 miles west of here.

Joshua Tree National Park consists of two deserts, the Colorado (a.k.a. Sonoran Desert) and the Mohave Desert. Each supports different plant life, although as you’d expect some plants, such as the Mohave Yucca, exists in both deserts. The Joshua Tree is uniquely a Mohave Desert species.

  1. I truly love deserts and these make me miss them, shame you camera wasn’t fast enough to capture the Road Runner being pursued by Wily Coyote Beep Beep!
