In Southern Nevada and Eastern California, the Mojave Desert strateches across the barren landscape challenging the traveler to venture forth. Within the Mojave desert are places of umimaginable beauty. Joshua Tree National Park, The Mojave Preserve, Lake Mead, Death Valley, Red Rocks State Park and the Valley of Fire are all located in the Mojave. The Joshu Tree plant ( a member of the lily family) is the symbol of this landscape. There are wonderful sand dunes, rock formations, sunsets and an occasional oasis to entice the reluctant photographer.
