“One time I saw a tiny Joshua tree sapling growing not too far from the old tree. I wanted to dig it up and replant it near our house. I told Mom that I would protect it from the wind and water it every day so that it could grow nice and tall and straight. Mom frowned at me. “You’d be destroying what makes it special,” she said. “It’s the Joshua tree’s struggle that gives it its beauty.”   Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle 

Today we’re on the way back to SF Bay Area after a truly amazing Meetup with my fellow 365’ers.  On our drive to Vegas, I was quite taken with the Joshua Trees all along the Mojave Desert stretches.  I decided that I had to take my 365 Photo with one of these beautiful creatures.  The average “tree” we saw was less than a few feet tall.  This was one of the biggest we saw from the road.  There were a few massive ones that we could not get close to because of fences etc.  

Truly breathtaking that something like this can survive for hundreds of years in the dry hot desert . . .
