Joshua Tree National Park
This National Park has a full “colony” of a very special kind of tree. Formerly known as yucca palm, now its widespread name is Joshua tree. In the mid-19th century, Mormons settlers gave it its name, as its shape reminded the biblical character Joshua, raising his hands towards the sky in a prayer.

Some parts of the park reminded me the geology of Montserrat, with its rounded shapes of solid rock. At sunset, there was a really beautiful panorama from Keys View.
