Rocks, rocks, and more rocks (Joshua Tree National Park)

Right after you enter JTNP from the western entrance, the first thing you see are the joshua trees (of course), but also the rocks.  Rocks, rocks, and more rocks!  But, they are interesting rocks.  The Alabama Hills in the Sierra have rocks, too, but they are different.  And, you have the incredible view of the Sierra behind them.  At Joshua Tree, you're on top of the plateau, so there are no mountains behind the rocks.  Just.The.Rocks.  There are so many, it would take me a week to see them all, but here are a few from last Sunday.

It's like something out of a Star Trek movie. We have a couple places here where there are these ginormous boulders. They're really cool looking.

Great shots of Joshua Tree rock formations. Seems like there is no other place in the work with rock formations quite like JT!

What a tumble of rocks!

JT is one of the few places I really enjoy rock climbing. Well, for me maybe more like boulder hopping. The fractured and eroded granitic plutons are similar to what's in my back yard during winter.
