  • These cacti are so cute!!! I want to hug them but that would hurt too much. Beautiful views at sunrise with the sun shining onto their spikes.  more »
  • Awesome place to come across inside Joshua tree national park. The cactus plants are stunning set against a background of brown hills and blue sky, an experience worth savouring.
  • Wow! Go at sunrise, not sunset. At sunrise the angle of the sun is less obstructed by the surrounding mountains and the cacti shimmer in magical light.
