Greetings from Joshua Tree National Park!

Every park has a story. We were expecting a story about Joshua trees and other desert life. We were pleasantly surprised by the story of the prospector's seeking their wealth in the park and also the geology of the park and convergence of the Sonoran and Colorado deserts.

Sincerely,

Jean

P.S. I support the parks because… They tell the American story.

Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree is an oft forgotten jewel overshadowed by the likes of Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. But, for those looking for great hikes, rock climbing, rappelling, and the unique Joshua tree, this park has much to offer.
