Photo of the Day (7/15/06)

Joshua Tree National Park
When I found out I was going to be staying in Yucca Valley, CA, a town only a stone's throw away from the popular Joshua Tree National Park, I didn't know what to expect. Having heard of Joshua Tree in the past I knew it would be kind of a big deal, but wasn't sure why. It didn't take long to discover the dual desert park's jaw-dropping dramatic landscapes. Incredible rock formations, never-ending rows of unique Joshua Trees and sunsets so warm and soft make a visit to the park a MUST. Beyond all that there is to see, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the park is its undisturbed silence and calm. With all that being said, today's photo comes from my own files. It's nothing close to spectacular. You'll have to head to the park for yourself if you want more, but in the meantime you can check out more of my own Joshua Tree shots by clicking here.
