When we arrived at the ranger station at Joshua Tree National Park, the place was in a total uproar because the Dead Man's Fingers cactus was blooming. This supposedly occurs only once a year, for only a couple hours.
Joshua Tree Park has rocks, cacti, and Joshua trees, which look as if Dr. Seuss designed them.
These are out of order - two cameras with different file numbering systems. They're a ways East, somewhere in the desert near the AZ - CA border.
