Joshua Tree: A Seussical Land of Enchantment

In 2009, I had the occasion to visit Joshua Tree National Park.  Joshua Tree is part of the United States’s national park system.  It is unique in every way.  The northern part of the park holds a different mood than the southern portion.  If you ever are in the area of this amazing place and are looking for the quintessential stroll among this Seussical landscape, I promise you that you will not be disappointed if you take in Hidden Valley.  And, if you go, don’t forget to find a high vantage point at the parking lot so you can soak in the southern view.  Some day I will return to spend more time in this photogenic world.

    1. Thank you. There is a place in Joshua Tree that can be found in its northern section, below the western gate. It is called Hidden Valley. That’s where most of the photos were taken. It’s a mile loop that is accessible to just about anyone. Get there when it first opens in the morning. It will be quiet. A perfect place for some personal reflection or a stroll through natural beauty.
