Joshua Tree National Park Rock Climbing

#climbing #rockclimbing #joshua tree #california

Southeastern California’s Joshua Tree National Park features two distinct desert ecosystems within it’s boundaries…
the low Colorado Desert & the higher Mojave Desert are generally defined by elevation.
Joshua Tree is a paradise to rock climbers & desert rats alike, a fantastic place for camping & backpacking as well!
The sunset colors are incredible, in this shot two rock climbers in the distance have just finished up their day.
If any of my climbing buddies out there know where this is… please let me know.
I’d love to add more accurate location data to this image!
