We were there this weekend with my son's scout troop. I took this photo while straggling back to camp Saturday night.
The desert is a combination of desolation and beauty. The rock formations at Joshua Tree are spectacular. This weekend's clouds only added to the area's beauty.
The whole place has an otherworldly look and feel to it. Though named for a cactus-like plant, the park is perhaps best known for its incredible rock formations that rise abruptly from the desert floor.
These rocks were just to the east of my tent.
