In fact Susette, the Joshua tree is native to the Mojave desert! I
lived for years in the AV, and will return before long. The "tree' is
not one as you mentioned, was named by Mormons that saw the tree as the
Biblical character with arms held high despite 50 knot winds. Last
month Nat Geo had an article on the Mojave desert and lots of beautiful
pictures of these "trees"! :)......Micro, alive and not a microbe!
