Joshua Tree National Park – Namesake

Here are some photos of Joshua Trees I took Friday while in Joshua Tree National Park in southern California.  I will post more tomorrow after I visit another area of the Park.

These next 3 photos didn’t live up to my expectations.  I will try to take new ones on Saturday and replace them.  This was an area where the trees were in the distance at a slightly higher elevation with only the blue sky behind them.

And here is what I have named the “Telephone Pole Joshua Tree”

It was by far the tallest one I saw in the Park on Friday.  Someone must have spilled a whole box of Miracle-Gro on it when it was young!
