Extend your arms to the sky with the yucca desert prophets.
Joshua trees (or yucca brevifolia) are native to the Mojave Desert of southeastern California. A national park was established in 1994 to protect the vegetation. The term "Joshua tree" was coined in the mid-19th century by Mormon settlers who were traveling across the desert. They believed the tree-like agave resembled the biblibal prophet, Joshua, with arms raised in prayer and guiding them westward.
