More Joshua Trees
Carry on winding your way through the desert.
The Joshua Trees grow above an elevation of 1500 feet. They're found in the highest concentrations in the world in the area we're passing through now.
Joshua Tree derives its name from a group of Mormons, who were on the way to the "promised land of California" when they got lost in the desert. The arms of the Joshua Trees reminded some of these sojourners of the prophet Joshua pointing them in the right direction. Thus, the name 'Joshua Tree' was born.
Keep heading straight through the park.
