The Famous Joshua Tree of The Mojave Desert

Joshua Tree – Red Rock Canyon

I was in Las Vegas for the last CES show, I visited Red Rock Canyon and I can only say that this place is a must see when you are in Vegas. I wanted to take a picture in the park of the famous Joshua Tree with mountains in the background and I did not see one that I like while I was in the park. Just outside the park, I came across one that really grab my attention. These trees are typically found in California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada. You can see a dense forest of Joshua Tree in the Mojave National Preserve.

I will certainly go back to make more pictures of this beautiful tree.

“One time I saw a tiny Joshua tree sapling growing not too far from the old tree. I wanted to dig it up and replant it near our house. I told Mom that I would protect it from the wind and water it every day so that it could grow nice and tall and straight. Mom frowned at me. “You’d be destroying what makes it special,” she said. “It’s the Joshua tree’s struggle that gives it its beauty.”
