Joshua Tree 2

Joshua Tree in the California Mojave Desert.

The name Joshua Tree (actually a large yucca plant) was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree's unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer.
