Bajada Trail

Ironwood

Ironwood, Colorado Desert
Within Joshua Tree National Park, the frost-sensitive ironwood (Olneya tesota), a Sonoran Desert plant, is found soley on this bajada. Only here does it find enough warmth and moisture to meet its specialized needs. The ironwood, which can grow quite large, provides shelter for many shade-loving plants and animals.
