Joshua Tree National Park

Apart from the Joshua Trees, there are also lots of rocks in Joshua Tree National Park and the Park is a popular destination for rock climbers. At places the rocks look like big boulders arranged and stacked by some long gone Giants but of cause the reality is that erosion took away other rocks on top and around these rocks leaving formations of monzogranite at several places throughout the Park. The White Tanks campground where this photo is taken, hugs one of these spots. The campground was named after a tank made by a cattle company to collect rain water for the cattle that used to graze here until 1945.
