I found this scrub Jay in the morning hunting for it’s breakfast. It would come to the same Joshua Tree every morning just outside the glass door where I would have my breakfast. We would eat together before I would set out on my day taking pictures of the Monument.

Joshua Tree Forest in a Canyon

This Joshua Tree forest is in a bolder canyon in the Joshua Tree Nation Monument in California. The Yucca Palms (aka Joshua Trees) are in full bloom in late March, when the picture was taken. The canyon walls are boulders, some the size of cars, stacked along the sides of the forest as if God placed them there, wanting to protect these trees from the rest of the Mohave Desert.
