Joshua Trees Gone Crazy!

Joshua Trees Gone Crazy!

I made a birding and photo trip out to the desert yesterday, and among other places, went by Black Rock Campground, part of Joshua Tree National Park. The effect of an extra rainy winter was in evidence, with blossoms all over the Joshua Trees. In drought years the trees look dry and quite unhappy, sometimes hardly blooming at all. This spring they are covered in blooms, and there was even some green ground cover between the trees. Stay tuned for a closer look at this interesting tree and its blossoms.
