Joshua Tree National Park - Joshua Tree Guide

Variety and Complexity

The desert. Some think it wretched and seemingly useless. For all its harshness, the desert is a land of surprising variety and complexity, a land of extreme fragility. Today's moment of carelessness may leave lasting scars or disrupt an intricate system of life that has existed for eons. Viewed from the roadside, the desert only hints at its hidden vitality. To the close observer, however, a tiny flower bud or lizard's frantic dash reveals Joshua Tree as a place of beauty and life. Take your time as you travel through this area. Joshua Tree National Park provides a space for finding freedom from everyday routines, space for self-discovery, and a refuge for the human spirit. Let the desert take hold of you.
