For a person from Montana. I made a trip through the Mojave this Winter and saw them in person, I like'um.
Yes, Joshua Trees are odd looking and they're pretty common to deserts of California and the southwestern states.
Thanks for the visit, alpinelight.
They even have them in the Virgin River
Gorge of Arizona, but a larger number are
seen in southern Nevada and California.
I've been through the super narrow Virgin River Gorge a number of time, but I couldn't take my eyes off of the road for a second. You know about the traffic there. So, you are saying that there are Joshua Trees up on hills around there, Larry?
It's called the Virgin River Gorge Recreation
Area, located at the "Cedar Pocket" interchange off of I-15.
I was surprised to find a "spanking" new BLM
campground the last time I was there.
There's a trail that descends hundreds of
feet down to the banks of the Virgin River.
You can view a multitude of amazing Joshua
trees in that area.
I know ... most drivers speed PAST that
area on their way to Bryce and Zion ..
