Joshua Tree One
This arch is one of several in the area just west of the Split Rock picnic area in Joshua Tree National Park. This 1590 square mile Park is partly in the Mojave Desert and partly in the Colorado Desert in southern California. The Park can be entered either from Twentynine Palms in the north or from Interstate 10 in the south. Driving about 4 1/2 miles south from the north entrance the road forks. Take the right fork and drive about 4 1/2 miles and turn right onto a rough dirt road for about 2 miles to the Split Rock picnic area. There are many interesting rock formations in the area west of the parking area, including small arches. Photo by Robert O'Connell
