Joshua Tree National Park

This National Park is where the Colorado Desert and Mojave Desert meet. The area we were in was more Colorado Desert so we didn't see to many Joshua Trees but here is what they look like.
We came upon camp grounds with rocks that looked like someone had stacked them. 
What a Creation!
The Cholla Cactus Garden.....
Apparently the thorns can 'jump' onto you...Brian wasn't to worried about them!
Blossoms starting....
Ocotillo  Cactus
So I hear . . . there is a Date Farm down the road.....
