I have heard of Joshua Tree National Park and was very keen to visit but to be honest disappointed upon arrival. Once you have seen one (1) Joshua Tree - they all look the same. Some of the rock formations were very interesting but overall,...More

This is a paradise for nature lovers. Watching the sunset across these rock formations, and the landscape gives an outer-world feeling. The desert fauna and flora give a good geological lesson.

Ventured out to Joshua Tree while staying in Palm Springs as I'd heard about it and seen it in movies and tv shows over the years. What a beautiful part of the world. Towering rock structures set among a desert flora and fauna backdrop -...More
