Joshua Tree National Park is a vast, 1,235 square mile park located in Southern California. Ecologically, the northern half of the park is located in the Mojave Desert while the southern half is located in the Colorado Desert. Originally designated as a National Monument in 1936, JTNP became a National Park during the Clinton Administration in 1994. The park features the world's largest collection of Joshua trees which are actually a type of yucca plant and not a tree. With countless large boulders, the Wonderland of Rocks area is a popular bouldering location for rock climbers in the winter months.
Joshua Tree is the closest National Park to the Los Angeles area in which I grew up. Naturally, it was one of the first places I attempted to photograph when I was first starting out. I've spent some time there over the years though it is a huge park that one can spend a lifetime exploring yet barely scratch the surface. Some of my favorite locations to visit are the Cholla Cactus Garden, Hidden Valley and Barker Dam.
