This is sort of an iconic picture of Joshua Tree National Park, except that it contains none of the plants the park is named for. But you will see scenes like this all through the park. We went this time to see the Spring blooms, one of which (the yucca plant) is captured in the lower left corner. Above the scene is a contrail of a jet flying over this place which has not changed in centuries.
Hidden Valley was, as legend tells us, the place where cattle rustlers would hide their critters until the law stopped looking for them. Though it doesn’t look like it, there is food for the animals here and hidden springs for water.

This is in castle rock, where there is rock climbing. It is pretty cool to watch people climbing up those big rock’s.
