After seen 2 city's it was time to visit the United States national parks. The first one we visited was the Joshua Tree. Often I heard from people who visited the California area that they did not visit the Joshua Tree. The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Bryce Canyon are more famous and visited by everybody. Very unfortunate to leave this park behind, because it really is very special here. We went there, after leaving Los Angeles, on 29th May. It was very hot, we clearely come to the desert area of California and Nevada. When we came to the park we were amazed by the beauty of these unique trees. The Joshua Tree is famous by the U2 cover of there album in the 80's. The trees were green in stead of black what I remember of the album. What was very special is that we were the only group in the park.
The quitness was amazing, and some people searched for a lonely spot to enjoy the silence in this unique park. One tip: do not climb in the trees. Two heroes did, and there legs were very much damaged! Perhaps also not good for the trees also. Take a walk, and enjoy is my device. For some of the group, this was one of the highlights of the tour!!
