The splendor of the Joshua tree
is as unique and identifiable
to the Mohave Desert
as the majestic saguaro cactus
is to the Sonoran Desert.

Joshua Tree

branches reach skyward like arms to Heaven
alone between sand and sun
waiting for an answer

The Mohave Desert Joshua Tree   Leave a comment

There’s a section of Highway 93
between Wikieup to Wickenburg —
Joshua Forest Scenic Road.
California has its National Park,
Arizona has its Scenic Road.

This narrow,
hilly  two-lane road
is part of our route
to Las Vegas
and Zion National Park
from Tucson.

It’s not easy to stop to take
snapshots of these majestic yuccas —
no shoulders and only an occasional
ranch road that sneaks-up on you
while being pushed by speeding drivers
trying to pass you.

On a recent drive
we were able to pull-off
to the fence-line
where others had done the same
leaving behind trashed beer cans —
what a paradox.

 The splendor of the Joshua tree
is as unique and identifiable to the
Mohave Desert
as the majestic saguaro cactus
is to the
Sonoran Desert.
