Nature Photography : California Dreaming Part II

Visiting Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree (Yucca brevifolia) Joshua Tree National Park, California, United States of America. Endemic in Mojave Desert, US: native and occurs nowhere else.


What a cool National Park it is, just East of Los Angeles I had such a great time exploring the desert & hills of the Mojave Desert. Not too many animals to discover but lots of Flora abound from cool cacti to delicate colourful desert flowers. I had great fun climbing & discovering the rocky hills of this park & it was there I found the most interesting things.
