"" Joshua Tree Tip by smoox


Fondest memory: So here they are at last - the Joshua Trees.The name 'Joshua Tree' was given by Mormons in the 1850s, who saw the craggy branches of the trees as the arms of Joshua leading them to the promised land. The trees (a kind of a yucca, actually) can grow up to 40 feet in height.
