A yucca in bloom
This yucca hasn't opened up yet
This is "Actual Size"! No Zoom Lens Here!
The desert floor is carpeted with wildflowers! Yellow brittlebush, white dune primrose, and a pretty purple flower whose name I do not know all dot the landscape.
On to the Cholla Cactus Garden. Why do they call a species of cholla Jumping Teddy Bears? Trust me, there is nothing cuddly about them with their prickly needles!

There is so much more to see here at Joshua Tree National Park. Although we saw signs of wildlife, including poop, footprints, and holes, we didn’t get any photo ops. And I still haven’t seen a desert tortoise! But alas, dusk is upon us and the park will be closing. Time to return to Quartzsite. It sure was a fun day!
