|Beavertail Cactus Flower|
After leaving the park boundaries, we passed through a zone at a still high elevation scattered with Joshua trees. I didn't realize we would find Joshua Trees here. I always thought they were only found farther south in the Mojave Desert. The trees were in bloom, too.

|Another Joshua Tree Flower|
I love the desert in the Spring when the flowers are in bloom. This was an unplanned treat for us and am glad we decided to drive home through Death Valley.
Tomorrow, views of the Eastern Sierras.
