Description

A Joshua tree with a single flower head was observed along park road Rt. 12 between the Quail Springs Picnic Area and the Upper Boy Scout Trailhead. I've lived in the area for 20 years and have never seen a Joshua tree blooming in early December. I walked a 1/4 mile radius loop around the tree and found no other trees blooming.
