Just joshua trees~Nature Notes 011311











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.

Weird and wonderful and just a little prickly as well. Thanks for sharing them.

Looks warm and texturally interesting. I like the strange looks of these trees.

How strangely human they are. I wouldn't be surprised to see on stretch and walk away, like a creature from a fairy tale.
