Joshua Tree Blossoms

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Just north of here is Joshua Tree National Park.  Named after the unique plant that is indigenous to this region, the park is popular with rock climbers. But in the spring, after good rains, the joshua tree unveils huge stalks of blossoms.  I've never seen any of these open any further than you see here.  But these giant spikes of flowers are an added sight to an otherwise stark desert.
