Joshua Trees in Central Arizona, North of Wikenburg, Arizona USA
Arizona
The prominent large plants with many thick branches are Joshua trees or Yucca brevifolia. The plant is found in Arizona, California, Nevada and the extreme southwest corner of Utah in the vast Mojave Desert region. Depending on local conditions the plants can live for hundreds and even a thousand years. It is difficult to imagine that so many desert plants are so long-lived. The plants were named by the early Mormon settlers who reportedly likened the plant to the Prophet Joshua reaching his hands up to the sky in prayer. The other prominent plants in the panorama consist mainly of creosote bushes and cholla cactus. This section of the Mojave Desert is location in northwest central Arizona just north of the town of Wickenburg. All plants are sensitive to elevation and thereby temperature changes and so as you drive through the desert and drive over the ridges the plant species change dramatically from one elevation to another.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
