A Joshua Tree Forrest, Big Brear California



  1. I was in awe the first time I lay eyes upon this area, it has been years; thanks for the memory. ajm (aka) Teddynator

    • I am glad it brought back memories. It does me too!

  2. My oldest grandson was born while they were stationed at Twenty Nine Palms. I can smell the desert in this image which brings back so many great memories.

    • I love when that happens! Thank for stopping by!

  3. Great photo! Such a unique and fascinating place! California deserts are so beautiful to me! Debra

  4. How neat ~ I never saw trees like that. Awesome! ~Patty

    • It is called a Joshua Tree. When the Mormons came west and they saw the trees they thought they looked like “Joshua” raising his arms to Jesus. Before that the Native Americans believed that they were the souls of the warriors. All the limbs that went up were good deeds and the ones that pointed down showed the bad deeds they did. I am lucky enough to have three in my yard. They only grow about an inch a year so you can see how big the ones in the picture are which means they are very old. They are also protected by law.
