During our last return trip to Joshua Tree National Park, I thought I'd find some unusual joshua trees and take photos of them! And, believe me, there ARE some weird ones! The one in the second photo was nearly bent over. The third one had a branch bent in a circle! And, the next one had branches nearly touching the ground! Not all joshua trees are perfectly formed. Those up by Keys Point were very closely bunched, while in other areas, they are far apart. Joshua Tree is such an interesting place and I can't wait to return! Nature Notes for January 13, 2011.
