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
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.
