Joshua Trees

Joshua Trees by Robby Edwards

Joshua Tree National Park, September 2004

This was my first view of Joshua trees during my visit to Joshua Tree National Park. I was surprised by the size, quantity and density of the Joshua trees.

I had only expected them to be five or six feet tall, and to be sparsely spread about the landscape. Imagine my surprise when I discovered this one which towered over me. And they were growing close together, like an orchard of Joshua trees had been intentionally planted.
