Seen One, Seen Them All
A reader and fan of my blog asked me to share with my readers their experience at Joshua Tree National Park in California. Thank you!
This park protects 794,000 acres where the Mojave and Colorado deserts converge. Roadrunners to Quail to Cactus Wrens. Bighorn Sheep to Desert Tortoise to Rattlesnake. Joshua Trees to Cacti to Piled Rocks.
This park would be a sight to see when everything is in full bloom! Who knows you just may find your own private oasis while visiting the park.
Visitors should start at the Joshua Tree Visitor Center to get the lay of the land and get a map of the park. Be prepared for the sun with a hat, sunblock and plenty of water. Check Out Keys View where you are at 5,185 feet elevation to view the valley, the mountain and the desert all at once. Watch out for the Cholla Catcus because they tend to jump and attach themselves to you, not a pleasant experience with the local cacti!
