Dozens, perhaps hundreds, of Joshua trees grow in this basin in the convergence of two major washes in the Hexie Mountains, farther to the south and east than is currently on record. Elevation 3,200'
Boyfriend for scale. :) We came across a number of Joshua trees growing at weird angles. Some had branches that would curve downwards toward the ground. In a few cases, an entire tree would bend over like this! Why does this occur?
