One can only marvel at why someone was driving a car in a totally remote and unforgiving area back at a time when the nearest paved roads were probably at least 50 miles away?
Not to mention that cars of yesteryear were much more likely to overheat or blow a tire than cars of today.
These cars were all seen on the relatively short hike to the "Wall Street Mill", an old mining operation in the Park near Barker Dam.
Given the large size of Joshua Tree National Park, it makes me wonder what to total abandoned car count is? I'm guessing it's a large number!
This last one is, I think, my favorite. I like all the Joshua Trees, boulders, and beautiful sky in the background!
Joshua Tree is a magical place from a photography point of view! Linking with Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from around the world.
