Here is my Nature entry: The strange and wonderful Joshua Trees
Ever since I first saw a picture of a Joshua Tree, I wondered if it was a cactus or a tree? They are a bizarre hybrid of both. We traveled for the last two years in December to Joshua Tree National Park to see them in real life. Just off the main road, we saw this beautiful specimen.
