Photographer's Note

within the bounderies of eastern california's Joshua tree National Park, the sonoran and mojave deserts meet. in the higher mojave portion of the park, forest of the strange joshua trees and a number of unique rock formations (as waht is seen in this foto) called inselbergs are protected. in lower colorado portion, the pinto basin exhibits the typical plants of this hotter sonoran desert.

for all its harshness, the desert is a land of surprising variety and complexity land of extreme fragility. viewed from the roadside, joshua tree national park only hints at its hidden variety. to the close observer, however, a tiny flower bud or the lizard's frantic dash reveals this desert park as a place of beauty and life.
